This Shelter's 'Puppy Cart' Is The Cutest Thing Ever "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Whenever the Nebraska Humane Society gets in a big litter of young puppies, the question always arises of how the staff is going to transport them all around the shelter. Puppies require a lot of attention and care that involves moving them around to different parts of the shelter, but young puppies are also very susceptible to getting sick, and therefore letting them walk, sniff and lick their way across the shelter isnt always the best idea. 

In order to keep all their incoming puppies safe, the shelter came up with the best idea, which has since turned into the cutest phenomenon ever.

Staffers at the shelter created a puppy cart, a big cart with an adorable label designed to carry puppies around the shelter. Not only is it an incredibly smart invention, theres also absolutely nothing cuter than a huge cart of puppies being pushed down a hall together.

We are a very clean shelter, but we intake all sorts of animals from all sorts of situations, Pam Wiese, VP of public relations and marketing at Nebraska Humane Society, told The Dodo. As young pups dont have full vaccinations, they are susceptible to picking up anything that may be lingering in higher traffic areas. To keep their feet off the floor and as safe as possible we transport them in the puppy cart. Its a sterilizable way to move them. Its also much easier to transport multiple puppies instead of making six trips to carry six puppies!

Brazil could lose Nepal-size area of rainforest due to policy revision "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

An area of Brazilian Amazon rainforest bigger than Ireland is at risk of losing its legal protection, according to new research. In an ironic twist, the trigger for this loss could come from the granting of protections to other areas of the Amazon. The study was conducted by researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and the University of Sao Paolo, Brazil. It was released this week in Nature Sustainability. Brazils Forest Act requires landowners living in the countrys Amazon region set aside 80 percent of their private land for native vegetation. Theyre not allowed to clear forests on that portion for farming, logging, or any other activity that requires deforestation. But the Act was revised in 2012 to include a paragraph that says this 80 percent requirement can be relaxed to 50 percent if a state protects more than 65 percent of its public land. The result, the researchers warn, could be the legalization of logging and other development activities in vast areas of rainforest once protected as reserves. The study estimates that between 65,000 and 154,000 square kilometers of the Brazilian Amazon could lose their protected status. In comparison, the land area of the country of Ireland is around 70,000 square kilometers. Most of the area under threat, its authors write, is comprised of primary forest with high levels of biodiversity and large stores of carbon. Brazils rainforests are home to many animals that stand to lose habitat if deforestation

RSPO adopts total ban on deforestation under sweeping new standards "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

JAKARTA The worlds leading certification body for ethically sourced palm oil has ordered a total ban on deforestation by its members, amid growing pressure from both companies and consumers. Members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) voted overwhelmingly in favor of the ban at the groups annual general assembly in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, on Nov. 15. The ban is now part of the RSPOs new core standards, the Principles and Criteria (P&C), which member companies must comply with for their product to be certified sustainable. While the RSPOs previous standards prohibited the clearing of primary, or virgin, forest to make way for palm plantations, they did allow for the cutting of secondary forests and peat forests with a peat layer less than 3 meters (10 feet) deep. While not as thick and lush as primary forests, secondary forests are still vital for wildlife, carbon storage, and the livelihoods of local and indigenous communities. Peatlands, meanwhile, are rich in carbon, and their destruction by palm oil companies in Indonesia, the worlds top producer of the commodity, releases significant quantities of greenhouse gases. Annual greenhouse gas emissions from converting a single hectare (2.5 acres) of peatland to oil palm plantation equal those from driving six times around the world in the average passenger vehicle. The RSPOs new standards mean palm oil growers must ensure future land clearing doesnt cause deforestation or damage areas especially rich in carbon, including peatlands and high carbon stock (HCS) forests. This means no more

Peru shares its fisheries surveillance data with the world "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

LIMA, Peru On Oct. 25, the Peruvian government made public its satellite surveillance data on 1,300 commercial fishing vessels plying Perus waters via the open-access platform Global Fishing Watch. Only the Peruvian government and companies in the fishing sector had access to the data previously. This is the beginning of a global-scale revolution in the transparency of industrial fisheries, said Juan Mayorga, a researcher at the Sustainable Fisheries Group, referring to the Peruvian governments decision. The Global Fishing Watch (GFW) platform bases its monitoring on data from the Automatic Identification System (AIS), a radio transmission system installed in a large part of the world fleet. However, not all vessels use this tool. In Peru, most use the Vessel Monitoring System (VMS), a method of satellite surveillance that GFW has now incorporated. The Global Fishing Watch platform monitors fishing vessels around the world. Image courtesy of GFW. Peru has become the second country in the world, following Indonesia, to make its VMS data publicly available. This has contributed to the expansion of the GFW database, which already had the data of 70,000 boats worldwide. These countries are setting an example to the world, showing a way to improve ocean sustainability, said Mayorga. Adding that information to GFW opens up many possibilities for improving the management of fisheries. Users can detect, for example, if a boat is fishing during the closed season of a species, if it enters an unauthorized area or if it sails into a protected area. According to

The top stories from our Spanish-language service, Mongabay Latam, investigated Colombias roadkill rates; Chiles marine forests; and Chinese energy projects in Ecuador. Mammals pay highest toll on Colombias highways Plans to double Colombias highway network by 2035 represent a major threat to wildlife conservation. A roadkill app and research have documented some 11,000 roadkill incidents, with mammals most affected, particularly the Andean white-eared opossum (Didelphis pernigra).

ICO Issuers Settle Registration Charges With SEC "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

SEC ICO charges

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has agreed to settle charges with two startups that sold tokens through Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in 2017. The companies were charged by the SEC for running their ICOs after the regulator clearly defined such offerings as unlicensed securities in its DAO Report of Investigation. The startups indicted by the SEC are Boston-based Airfox, which sold $15 million worth of tokens, and Paragon Coin, which raised $12 million selling tokens. 

We have made it clear that companies that issue securities through ICOs are required to comply with existing statutes and rules governing the registration of securities, Stephanie Avakian, co-director of the SECs Enforcement Division, explained in a release. These cases tell those who are considering taking similar actions that we continue to be on the lookout for violations of the federal securities laws with respect to digital assets.

The two cases happen to be a first for the commission where civil penalties were imposed for "ICO securities offering registration violations," and they follow the commission's first non-fraud case against Munchee Inc. in 2017, when it stopped the startup's token offerings and instructed the company to return proceeds to investors.

The companies involved have, however, agreed to settle the case without admitting to or denying the findings from the regulator. Each company will pay a $250,000 fine to the SEC and compensate investors who purchased the tokens. Both startups are also required to register their tokens as securities and to file periodic reports to the SEC.

Steven Peikin, co-director of the SECs Enforcement Division, believes the new model affords investors the ability to be compensated for purchasing unregistered securities.

By providing investors who purchased securities in these ICOs with the opportunity to be reimbursed and having the issuers register their tokens with the SEC, these orders provide a model for companies that have issued tokens in ICOs and seek to comply with the federal securities laws.

This is the SEC's second settlement in less than 30 days. Just last week, it reached an agreement to settle charges leveled against the founder of decentralized exchange EtherDelta, Zachary Coburn. Coburn, who had been accused of running an unregistered national securi...

La Llorona is from Mexican folklore, it translates to, the weeping woman. La llorona is a vengeful spirit who cries as she looks for her children whom she killed. Her cries, if you hear them, are said to bring misfortune and afterlife. There have been several sightings over the years, but no source for the story has ever been found. But what if La llorona wasnt just a story, what if there really was a spirit stalking riverbanks, looking for children. What if the curse of la llorona was real.

Oxfam Officially Launches Blockchain-Based Program That Empowers Farmers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Oxfam has officially launched their blockchain-based program, called BlocRice, that is aimed at giving farmers significantly more negotiation power and to increase the efficiency of the supply chain by connecting buyers and suppliers directly through their system.

The new program, which has undergone successful trials in Cambodia, has a primary goal of increasing revenues for farmers, who can be severely underpaid, by allowing them to form agricultural cooperatives that operate similarly to labor unions, that ensure that agriculture product prices rise across the board.

Solinn Lim, the country director of Oxfam in Cambodia, spoke about the launch of the BlocRice initiative, explaining that it will promote the use of smart contracts between organic rice farmers and exporters in Cambodia, and buyers in the Netherlands.

BlocRice promotes the use of such digital contracts as tools for social and economic empowerment. The application of blockchain technology is expected to enhance the negotiation power of small-scale farmers in their rice value chains, who are usually poor primary producers, Lim explained.

The use of blockchain-based smart contracts will be cohesive between all the parties in the supply chain, and Oxfam has already negotiated and facilitated the use of these products between rice farmers in Cambodias Preah Vihear province, exporters in Cambodia, and SanoRice, the Dutch rice cracker manufacturer.

Lim added that all the information regarding the sourcing, transportation, and use of the rice, will be shared through a central, blockchain-based, system that will allow for a more cohesive and transparent relationship between all involved parties.

BlocRice promotes the use of such digital contracts as tools for social and economic empowerment. The application of blockchain technology is expected to enhance the negotiation power of small-scale farmers in their rice value chains, who are usually poor primary producers, she explained.

Furthermore, BlocRices modernization of the rice ecosystem will also introduce cashless payments to farmers, many of which previously did not have bank accounts, using accounts provided by Acleda bank.



Jesus to be dropped from Christmas day schedules "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In a break from a 2000-year-long run, son of God, Jesus, will for the first time not feature in this years festivities and TV listings.

Speculation was high among followers that this Yuletide the carpentry wizard would transfigure into the so-called War Messiah predicted by some evangelicals and Jehovahs Witnesses. However, executive emissary to the Lord, Chris Chibnall, assured fans that though Jesus will be absent from Christmas day sermons, he will be back for a special hour-long sermon on New Years Day to once again inspire and terrify children in equal measure across the globe. On Christmas day, services will instead feature compilations of classic Morecambe and Wise parables mixed with hymns devoted to the worship of Felicity Kendall.

The popular time-travelling hero first appeared in 1AD, initially in a series of educational historical stories, though his ever more fantastical adventures soon grew a cult following, with many of its adherents attending weekly conventions to discuss their favourite stories, such as when he threw the money lenders out of the temple, proclaimed himself the prophesied Jewish messiah, and reunited with previous incarnations of himself to destroy the Dalek fleet in the Gallifrey time war. The character is today known and loved worldwide for his eccentric dress, bumbling companions, and possession of a bread basket which is bigger on the inside.

Though gospel-writers have promised the new verses will be his most exciting yet, some devotees have complained that recent stories have lacked plot twists and relied on too much mawkish sentiment and politically correct gesturing, with the Devil, the Levites and popular nemesis Judas all noticeable by their absence. Others have criticised their continuity, with characters seemingly coming back from the dead with regularity. One scribe told us: Its a lot of pressure coming up with a whole new set of verses every year with ever more colourful villains and situations, but we want to reassure the fans that with all the changes we will still feature classic villains and running up and down temples.

He added: It used to be that Christmas day services would guarantee audiences of up to 20 million, though we have to recognise that many people now choose to skip services on the day and access catch-up sermons at a more convenient time, that way they can focus on the true meaning of Christmas watching TV.

Plan to ship gorillas from DRC to Zimbabwe raises alarm "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In September, the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks) revealed that the country would soon receive a donation of gorillas from the DRC. Okapis (Okapia johnstoni), an endangered species also known as forest giraffes, will also be translocated from the DRC, Zimparks director-general Fulton Upenyu Mangwanya told local media during a visit to a nature reserve. The disclosure came on the heels of the controversial transfer of 10 white rhinos from Zimbabwe to the DRC. Zimbabwes government says the translocated animals will help boost the countrys tourism and bring diversity to the countrys wildlife. But news of the proposed transfer has raised concerns among both residents and primate experts. View from the summit of Mount Nyangani, Zimbabwes highest peak at 2,592 meters (8,504 feet). Located within the Nyanga National Park, the peak is sacred to the local population. Image by Damien Farrell via Flickr CC-BY 2.0. Where will they go? Nyanga, in the highlands of eastern Zimbabwes Manicaland province, has been floated as a possible habitat for the translocated animals. The area is famed for its cool temperatures and lush vegetation, nourished by several rivers and streams that course through the area. The mountainous terrain teems with wildlife, including zebras, waterbucks, impalas, blue duikers and elands. But the area isnt suitable for either mountain gorillas (Gorilla beringei beringei) or okapis, says Mike Hitschmann, a wildlife expert with the Cecil Kop Nature Reserve in Manicaland. Both, he says, inhabit specific niches in tropical climates. Where, specifically, would they want to


The curious case of performance testing setTimeout(0) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

(For full effect, read in a husky voice while surrounded by a cloud of smoke)

Image by Studio-Dee on Pixabay.

It all began on a gray fall day. The sky was cloudy, the wind was blowing, and someone told me that setTimeout(0) creates, on average, a 4 ms delay. They claimed thats the time it takes to pop the callback off the stack, onto the callback queue and back on the stack again. I thought it sounded fishy (this is the bit you imagine me in black and white with a cigar in my mouth). Given that the rendering pipeline needs to run every 16 ms to allow smooth animations, 4 ms seemed like a long time to me. A very long time.

A few naive tests in the devtools with console.time()confirmed it. The average delay across 20 runs was about 1.5 ms. Of course, 20 runs does not a sufficient sample size make, but now I had a point to prove. I wanted to run tests on a larger scale that could get me a more accurate answer. I could then, of course, go and wave that in my colleagues face to prove that they were wrong.

Why else do we do what we do?

Film Noir Photo ShootPortland Lightist by Randy Kashka on flickr.

The traditional method

Right away, I found myself in hot water. In order to measure how long it took setTimeout(0) to run, I needed a function that:

  • took a snapshot of the current time
  • executed setTimeout
  • then exited immediately so that the stack would be clear and the scheduled callback could run and calculate the time difference
  • and I needed that function to run a sufficiently large number of times so that the calculations were statistically meaningful

But the go-to construct for thisthe for-loopwouldnt work. Because the for-loop doesnt clear the stack until it has executed every loop, the callback wouldnt run immediately. Or, to put it in code, we would get this:

The loop executes 10 times, and only then are the callbacks popped back on the stack

The problem here was inherentif I wanted to run setTimeout multiple times automatically, I would have to do it from within another context. But, so long as I ran from within another context, there would always be an additional delay from the time I started the test to the time the callback executed.

Of course I could slum it like some of these good-for-nothing detectives, write a....


Study: US has spent nearly $6 Trillion on war since 9/11 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The United States is on track to have spent nearly $6 trillion on war since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a report released Wednesday.

The annual analysis from the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University far exceeds Pentagon estimates because it looks at all war-related costs  including the Pentagons war fund, related spending at the State Department, veterans care and interest payments  for military operations in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

We were told to expect wars that would be quick, cheap, effective and beneficial to the U.S. interest, study author Neta Crawford said at a Capitol Hill news conference. Because we finance these wars on a credit card, the costs of the wars themselves pose a national security challenge.

The study estimates that war-related spending through fiscal 2019 will total $4.9 trillion. Another projected $1 trillion for veterans care through fiscal 2059 brings the total to $5.9 trillion, according to the study.

Should the wars continue through fiscal 2023, total costs will be more than $6.7 trillion, the study added, citing the Pentagons projected future years spending and likely needs for veterans.

Its important for the American people to understand the true costs of war, both the moral and monetary costs, Senate Armed Services Committee ranking member Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) said in a statement. Our nation continues to finance wars and military operations through borrowing, rather than asking people to contribute to the national defense directly, and the result is a serious fiscal drag that were not really accounting for or factoring into deliberations about fiscal policy or military policy.

The latest Pentagon estimate pegged its costs in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria since 9/11 at $1.5 trillion, according to its August report to Congress.

The Watson Institute study says the Pentagon and State Department war funds for Iraq and Afghanistan make up $1.8 trillion of its total alone, with Iraq costing $822 billion and Afghanistan costing $975 billion.

Syria has cost $54 billion, Pakistan has cost $10 billion, the post-9/11 homeland security mission known as Operation Noble Eagle has cost $23 billion and other war funds for Africa and Europe have cost $137 billion, the study adds.

In addition to spending, the study estimate...

After the Fork: Heres How Exchanges Are Dealing With Bitcoin Cash

The smoke is still clearing from Bitcoin Cashs hard fork, but exchanges have already moved in to add support for the products of the skirmish.

On November 16, 2018, what was intended to be a routine hard fork upgrade of the Bitcoin Cash blockchain became a struggle for hashing power and chain dominance as Bitcoin Satoshis Vision (SV), led by Craig S. Wright, attempted to wrestle control over the Bitcoin Cash blockchain from its original client, Bitcoin ABC.

Bitcoin ABC (thus far) has strong-armed Bitcoin SV with its mining power and held onto its position as the dominant chain, but yesterday's showdown still culminated in a coin split that left the network with two rival coins, which, for the purpose of this article, well refer to as BCHABC and BCHSV.

And this split has left a mess of potential markets for exchanges to manage. In the aftermath, theyre stuck with either choosing to support both coins, default to the ABC chain as the real BCH or sit tight until they feel comfortable making a decision either way. Not every exchange is on the same page for what each coins ticker should be either, and some seem content to ignore the forks janus-faced by-products and carry on with their usual bitcoin cash trading.

Varying Levels of Support

A handful of exchanges have announced that they will be supporting both coins for the time being.

Some, like Poloniex, HitBTC and Bittrex got ahead of the game by offering futures trading between the two coins before the hard fork even took place. Announced on November 7, Poloniex first featured futures in the run up to the fork and, since the coin split, it has integrated support for coins under the tickers BCHABC and BCHSV in the form of BTC and USDC trading pairs.

Pope Francis Prays for Deliverance from Nibiru "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Last Monday, Pope Francis held a private meeting at which he told Pontifical clergy to pray for deliverance from Nibiru, said a Vatican insider speaking under condition of anonymity. The gathering occurred shortly after he publically delivered an entirely different message to the Pontifical Academy of sciences, telling the ecclesiastical herd that the two greatest threats to humanity are nuclear war and man-made climate change.  At a clandestine assembly at the Apostolic Palace , however, the Pope changed his tune and told trusted cardinals and bishops that only their collective prayers can stop Nibiru the Destroyer from unleashing untold havoc upon the world.

Without citing a date, the Pope said, Time is short, and that Nibiru is rapidly speeding toward a position that will place it between the Earth and the Sun; when that happens, he added, the institution of Catholicism would face Judgment Day.

Pope Francis isnt concerned with the millions of Catholics across the world. Its all about survival for the Vatican and Catholicism. He knows the sins that have been committed by his flock, and that his silence on issues of greed, corruption, and pedophilic priests has jeopardized the continuance of the institution.  He believes that Nibiru will smite the Vatican and condemn him and thousands of priests to purgatory when Nibiru reaches perigee, Judgment Day.

Why You Need BPA-Free Drinking Vessels For Your Bug-Out Bag "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This article was originally published by Jeremiah Johnson at Tess Penningtons

Tess is the author of The Preppers Blueprint: How To Survive ANY Disaster

This article stresses the importance of finding drinking vessels that will not leach chemicals out of their very walls and poison you. Yeah! Sounds problematic, doesnt it? Well, it is. BPAs (Bisphenol-A, a chemical used in plastics for the past 60 years). BPAs are found in both epoxy (used in food cans and even in dentistry), and in polycarbonate plastics. The latter is used in vessels that hold drinks and food. Studies have shown that BPAs affect the brain and other systems of the body. The FDA said the levels of BPA within the plastics are safe.

No. Safe is when there are no levels of such things in your food.

Fortunately, you have solutions at hand in the form of glass drinking bottles and steel bottles. I have mentioned this in the past, but there are a few things to consider here also to make your finds truly effective. Lets cover them.

  1. If its glass, make sure its wide-mouthed and/or freeze-resistant: The problem is in the wintertime. If that glass vessel should freeze, having it wide-mouthed, and not filling it up all the way are the solutions. Leave about or more headspace to provide for expansion with a freeze, if it should occur.  Suggestions here are for wide-mouth Mason jars (one-quart or larger). You can find them in stores that sell canning supplies, and also order them online. Glass also gives you another advantage: a glass jar with water inside and left in the sun will heat up almost akin to a solar oven, and for those old enough to remember Don Meredith and his Sun-Tea ads for Liptonyes, it works. Put your tea bags inside and leave it out. The sun will do the rest.
  2. Steel: Yes, to paraphrase Rage Against the Machine, a fistful of steel will knock out t...


Time-Travel Crypto Once Backed by Trump-Appointed Acting Attorney General "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker once was involved in an alleged scam promoting strange inventions, including a time-travel cryptocurrency.

Attorney General Matthew Whitaker Backed an Alleged Scam Company

Earlier this month, United States President Donald Trump ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions from his post after Trump grew increasingly frustrated with Sessions recusal from the Russia probe. 

In his place, Trump appointed the Chief of Staff under Sessions, Matthew Whitaker, to the role of acting U.S. Attorney General.

The move sparked much controversy, with critics condemning Trump appointing Whitaker without approval from the Senate, which according to some violates the Constitution. And as is always the case with newly-appointed politicians, a witch hunt ensued and Whitakers shady past was uncovered.

Invention Scam Firm Worked on a Time Travel Cryptocurrency

Whitakers peppered history could have been erased, if the time-travel cryptocurrency he once backed ever came to fruition.

It turns out, Whitaker was once paid at least $10,000 in 2014 to serve on the advisory board of an invention company called World Patent Marketing. The newly-appointed Attorney General appeared in promotional videos, provided quotes in press materials, and in general showed a strong association with World Patent Marketing.

As a former U.S. Attorney, I would only align myself with a first class organization, he said in a press release issued by World Patent Marketing from back in 2014. 

Except World Patent Marketing ended up potentially being a complete scam, with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission filing a complaint against the firm over reports from consumers who went in debt or lost the entirety of their investments with the invention firm. 

The company was ordered by a Florida judge to close its doors for good and was forced to pay a settlement of $25 million.

Ron English Plans to Whitewash a $730,000 Banksy, and then Sell It "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Banksys Slave Labour (Bunting Boy) mural as it appeared in May 2012 (via Wikimedia Commons)

American street artist Ron English has announced his plans to stage a modern take on Robert Rauschenbergs Erased de Kooning Drawing by expunging a famous Banksy mural from existence. English says the controversial decision represents a protest against the art markets continued monetization of street art.

Were tired of people stealing our stuff off the streets and reselling it so Im just going to buy everything I can get my hands on and whitewash it, English told the United Kingdoms Press Association, adding,  Im going to paint over it and just include it in one of the walls in my house.

Like Banksy, English is known for the strong political messages of his street art, which explores brand imagery and advertising. The artist has been arrested multiple times, preferring to use public spaces and billboards as his canvas.

The artists announcement comes roughly a month after Banksy attempted to destroy one of his own paintings, detonating a hidden shredding mechanism on Girl with a Balloon (2006) immediately after it sold for $1.3 million at a Sothebys auction.

Englishs target is Banksys Slave Labour (Bunting Boy) (2012), which he recently acquired for $730,000 at Juliens Auctions in Los Angeles. The work depicts a young child crouched over a sewing machine as he produces Union Jack bunting. It was a protest against the controversial use of sweatshops to manufacture memorabilia for the Diamond Jubilee and London Olympics in 2012. And while Slave Labour was first painted on the outside wall of a bargain shop in north London, it was mysteriously removed months later before resurfacing...

Taipei Biennial Leads Multi-Disciplinary Discussion on Interconnectivity of Ecosystemic Structures "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The 11th edition of Taipei Biennial 2018, Post-NatureA Museum as an Ecosystem takes place at Taipei Fine Arts Museum from November 17, 2018 to March 10, 2019. Co-curated by Mali Wu and Francesco Manacorda, the Biennial focuses on the interconnectivity of ecosystemic structures formed between humans and nature and aims to serve as a platform for social experimentation, generating new interdisciplinary possibilities for long-lasting, community-driven, bottom-up synergies.

The exhibition venue, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, is reconsidered as a social model. Exhibitions grow quickly, occupy a limited time span, and have little ability to sustain their reach, while museums develop slowly and organically, responding carefully to their environments and preserve their own longevity. The curators mention, if too rigidly confined by an architectural and conceptual framework, a museum can become an isolated space for art contemplation, rather than remain open to constant ecosystemic transformation, osmosis and growth. This Biennial aims to investigate how museum as an institution exists as, and within, a social, cultural, economic and political ecosystem.

A New Approach to Thwarting Selfish Bitcoin Miners "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A New Approach to Thwarting Selfish Bitcoin Miners

Selfish mining is an attack on the Bitcoin network that has been known to be possible for several years. By propagating new blocks slowly (on purpose or by accident), a loophole is opened for miners to unfairly increase their profits in relation to other miners.

However, researchers Cyril Grunspan and Ricardo Prez-Marco claim that by broadcasting the presence of orphan blocks, selfish mining can become a thing of the past.

Grunspan, a professor at Paris ESILV graduate school of engineering, and Prez-Marco, the director of research at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Paris, have authored a report on the costs of selfish mining and its profitability, which they believe have been largely ignored by the Bitcoin community. As former mathematicians, both men were introduced to Bitcoin in 2011 and developed a lasting taste for it. The authors have worked hard to increase awareness and adoption throughout France and recently organized the Paris Cryptofinance Seminar, which took place in October 2018.

Speaking with Bitcoin Magazine, Prez-Marco describes selfish mining as a block-withholding strategy, and says it was first discovered in 2012 in the BitcoinTalk Forum. Rogue (selfish) miners do not publish mined blocks as indicated by the Bitcoin protocol, but instead try to build an advantage with respect to the official blockchain so they can invalidate a maximum number of honest blocks when releasing their secret chain.

Prez-Marco says the duo has made two main contributions to the analysis of this problem.

The first one is to build a correct model for the profitability of the strategy that was lacking, based on the iterative games (inspired from other gambling problems) that account for the profit and loss per unit of time.

Based on this model, Prez-Marco says that without a difficulty adjustment, the honest mining strategy still ranks as the most profitable one, as selfish mining tends to be a somewhat costly procedure.

Thus, it follows that most selfish miners do not attack the Bitcoin network itself, but rather attack the difficulty adjustment algorithm, making it easier for them to garner equal rewards with honest miners while using less computing power.

From this, it became clear that a major bug in the Bitcoin protocol resides in the difficulty adjustment formula, he comm...


Forkcoin That Split From Bitcoin Now Struck By Contentious Hardfork "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The failed Forkcoin referred to as "bitcoin cash" has been hit by its own contentious hardfork. A Roger VER-ified1 client called ABC decided to implement new rules from an "official roadmap" while a client backed by notorious fraudster Craig 'Hoaxtoshi' Wright decided not to. As of this writing one chain has more blocks committed than the other, but the clear losers appear to be all parties involved in this dispute including those furthest on the periphery who let themselves become affected by it through failing to appropriately discount the deficits in credibility attached to the folks positioned as "leaders" in this incredibly sour and bitter wank competition.

An Insult to the American People: Outrage After Pentagon Fails First-Ever Audit "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

After years of empty promises and demands from frustrated members of Congress, the Pentagon finally conducted its first-ever comprehensive auditand unsurprisingly failed it, Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan revealed Thursday.

We failed the audit, but we never expected to pass it, Shanahan told reporters at a press briefing. While expressing irritation with the poor money management, he added, it was an audit on a $2.7 trillion dollar organization, so the fact that we did the audit is substantial.

Although a 1990 federal law requires all U.S. government agencies to conduct annual financial audits, the Pentagon put it off until launching this one last December. Critics of the United States astronomical military spending said the findings were precisely why lawmakers and the public have demanded Defense Department audits for decades.

This is exactly why we must AuditThePentagon, tweeted Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.). The unchecked waste, fraud, and abuse at the Pentagon is an insult to the American people.

The simple truth is that the Pentagon is an atrocious steward of the hundreds of billions of dollars taxpayers give them every year, Win Without War director Stephen Miles told Common Dreams.

Whether it is massively overpaying for spare parts, mismanaging large weapons programs, or failing at the basics business of doing business, this audit confirms that the Pentagon is in dire need of reform, he added. Throwing endless money at the Pentagon is what has created these problems, and the solution rests in finally tightening the worlds largest bureaucracys fiscal belt.

Even while members of Congress have called for audits, theyve passed bipar...


Britains Biggest Speed Camera Uses a Canon 100-400mm Lens "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Gloucestershire police have unveiled Britains biggest speed camera. Called the A417, the portable camera can catch drivers violating laws from roughly 1,000 meters or about 3/5 of a mile. And on the front of the camera is a Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS telephoto zoom lens.

The camera is dubbed The Long Ranger, and it can capture clear video and still photos of people inside their cars from great distances. Its being deployed on the major route between Gloucestershire and Wiltshire to help police catch driving offenses such as speeding, tailgating, and using a phone while behind the wheel.

Many people have come to me with their concerns about speeding and other safety issues along this road, says Gloucestershire Police Chief Martin Surl. We now have a chance to test a new model of collaborative road policing []

The aim is not just to penalise motorists but to uphold the law by creating a change in peoples behaviour. But the police will enforce the law when necessary.

While traditional speed guns and cameras can usually be seen by drivers from a distance, allowing them time to change their behavior, the Canon 100-400mm paired with a 1.4x teleconverter provides a 35mm focal length of 560mm. Its unclear what sensor size the A417 uses, but the resulting focal length allows the A417 to clearly capture drivers from 1km away, making it too far away to be seen while approaching it.

A closer look at the camera and lens. Photo by SWNS.

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS is a discontinued lens that was first announced in September 1998. While it was praised for its optical quality, zooming with the lens involves pushing and pulling the front and rear barrels apart with a telescoping action rather than with a zoom ring. This meant that air is sucked in when zooming from the wide to telephoto ends, and dust would often be sucked in at the same time.

For this reason, the lens is nicknamed the Dust Pump.

Judicial Watch: "Amazon HQ2: Magnet for Corruption, Creative Destruction" "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Amazon HQ2 sweepstakes is over and the winner is Queens, New York. And some place in Virginia called National Landing. And Nashville, Tennessee.

New York and Virginia will split Amazons second headquarters, while Nashville gets a consolation prize operations center. The Amazon move cements Queens status as an icon of the new New York dynamic, diverse, economically upward, technologically savvy, and largely low-crime. Forget about Brooklyn. The future is Queens.

But that future is about to get a massive stress test.

Deals like HQ2 are a magnet for corruption. Amazon claims the new Long Island City site will create 25,000 jobs with an average wage of more than $150,000 per year. Ditto Virginia. In exchange for this fairy tale, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio ponied up more than $1.5 billion in tax breaks and grants to be overseen by Albanys famously corrupt political culture. The state will seize control of the land. Amazons construction costs will be reimbursed. Jeff Bezos gets federal tax breaks for distressed property, a helipad, and a partridge in a pear tree. Instead of property taxes paid to the city, Amazon says it will contribute to an Infrastructure Fund for local improvements developed through input from residents during the planning process.  Watch for Amazon-aligned groups to magically appear to game this process. Watch for Albany-aligned special interests to start putting their hands in the pie.

As for oversight, forget about it. The governor and mayor agreed on a plan to cut out the New York City Council, which is specifically tasked to examine large land-use projects. City Council Speaker Corey Johnson is apoplectic, excoriating the deal as extremely troubling and done behind closed doors, with zero community input. Freedom of information requests about the project have been stonewalled and denied.

Now, theres no doubt that HQ2 offers lots of good jobs though Ill believe 25,000 for New York at $150k when I see it but its also true that Queens is about to get a lesson in Schumpeters law of creative destruction. The gale force wind of capitalism, Schumpeter wrote, incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating the ne...

Crypto Hangover Causes Nvidias Stock to Tumble 17% "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Following a week of widespread carnage in the cryptocurrency markets, traditional retail stocks involved with the crypto sector are feeling the burn as well, with the California-based computer chip maker, Nvidias (NVDA) price tanking on the Nasdaq stock exchange.

Nvidias plunge came about after the company reported Q3 results that were significantly below what analysts and investors had expected, causing a sharp selloff that forced its price down 17% to its current price of $167.94.

Nvidias ties to the cryptocurrency industry have contributed to its recent drop, with Bitcoin recently setting fresh 2018 lows when it gradually declined from $6,500 to $6,200, and then sharply dropped to its current price of $5,600.

A sizable portion of their revenue comes from their cryptocurrency mining hardware, which enables miners to efficiently use computing power to solve complex mathematical equations that power cryptocurrencies and rewards those miners with digital assets.

Although the crypto boom in 2017 and early-2018 proved to be beneficial for Nvidia, the preceding crash is now negatively affecting their revenue stream.

Nvidias CEO, Jensen Huang, spoke to investors about the negative effects of the cryptocurrency markets on a conference call on Thursday, saying that the crypto hangover lasted longer than we expected.

Due to a combination of declining cryptocurrency-based sales, and less purchase orders from major gaming customers, like Nintendo, Nvidia is now estimating that their revenues for the current holiday season will drop to $2.7 billion, down significantly from analysts previous estimates of $3.4 billion.

Turning the Artists Studio Inside Out "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Installation view of Dark Matter: Joel Otterson at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center 2018 (all photos courtesy John Michael Kohler Arts Center unless otherwise noted)

SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin  A series of four exhibitions corralled under the title Live/Work at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (JMKAC) demystifies the artistic process more than any other show Ive seen in recent memory. Together, the exhibitions manifest the messy, iterative, and collaborative processes by which artists combine experience, an understanding of materials, intuition, and deft dexterity to create objects that hold and convey meaning. In essence, each of the shows contained within Live/Work turns JMKACs gallery space into an extension of the artists studios.

A work by Jessica Jackson Hutchins

Why Understanding the Brutal Reality of the SHTF Could Save Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper

Theres something incredibly important for your survival that a lot of folks arent doing. Ive written before about overriding your bodys natural urge to freeze in panic when something terrible happens, but theres an additional step you must take. You need to know the horrible truth about the SHTF. The ugly, brutal truth.

Because as much as we stockpile, go to the shooting range and shoot stationary objects, can vegetables from our gardens, and raise chickens in our backyards, it only prepares us partially.

From my many interviews with guys like Selco and Jose, I know for a fact that an all-out collapse is a dirty, terrifying, and brutal matter of life and death every single day.

As much as we wish it was, the SHTF is not about you being in a bubble, peacefully working in your vegetable garden while the world goes to hell around you outside the bubble. The darkness can reach you wherever you are.

Why is it so important to know about the bad stuff?

Many of us try to insulate ourselves from the dark things going on in the world. I know that I stay away from social media beyond what is required for work because Im sick of the arguing and the hatred. There are certain articles in the news I hesitate to read because I know they will haunt me. This is human nature we avoid things that scare us, sicken us, and make us unhappy.

But there are some exceptions to this rule that you should make.

Its incredibly important to know about the horrible things that could occur when the SHTF well before it happens. I asked Selco about this in a conversation we were having about his new book, The Dirty Truth About SHTF Survival. I asked him why people needed to know about the horrors he faced. He replied,

So you wont be shocked and so you can shorten adapting period while you are shocked.

Generally speaking, there are lot of sick and bad and dangerous people. We just do not see them because the layer of civilization and the system covers it. And of course, if I had known, I would prep more but in the way that I would invest more in skills. Much more than in equipment.

Everything is much more mobile and fluid then people expect, but if you understand this, you will be able to move wi...

Debbie--have you seen THE RANSOM OF MERCY CARTER by Caroline Cooney? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A reader wrote to ask if I've reviewed The Ransom of Mercy Carter by Caroline Cooney. It was published in 2001 by Random House. Here's the overview:

Deerfield, Massachusetts is one of the most remote, and therefore dangerous, settlements in the English colonies. In 1704 an Indian tribe attacks the town, and Mercy Carter becomes separated from the rest of her family, some of whom do not survive. Mercy and hundreds of other settlers are herded together and ordered by the Indians to start walking. The grueling journey three hundred miles north to a Kahnawake Indian village in Canada takes more than 40 days. At first Mercy's only hope is that the English government in Boston will send ransom for her and the other white settlers. But days turn into months and Mercy, who has become a Kahnawake daughter, thinks less and less of ransom, of Deerfield, and even of her "English" family. She slowly discovers that the "savages" have traditions and family life that soon become her own, and Mercy begins to wonder: If ransom comes, will she take it?
The Ransom of Mercy Carter is a captivity story. These kinds of story started with Mary Rowlandson's account of her captivity in 1676. There have been many since then, including

  • Lois Lenski's Indian Captive: The Story of Mary Jemison, published in 1941. Like Cooney's book, it  also won a Newbery Honor Medal.
  • Elizabeth George Speare's Calico Captive, published in 1957, and based on the capture of James Johnson and his family in 1754. 

It'd be interesting to do a chart of plot points across these three books. Cooney's opens with the place (Deerfield, Massachusetts), the date (February 28, 1704) and the temperature (10 degrees below zero). The first page is about Mercy's family settling into bed for the night, and praying:
Dear Lord, prayed Mercy Carter, do not let us be murdered in our beds tonight.
I'll see if I can get a copy of the book, but some things I see (like that first line) suggest that the book is a sensational telling--more of a thriller than anything else. The word "savage" appears in it 29 times.

Skimming what I can see online, I see there's a scene where the captive kids watch a Native man who had "taken four scalps" earlier. The description of his actions is very detailed as he scrapes flesh away. Pretty gross, isn't it? So, I have a hunch that The Ransom of Mercy Carter will end up with a not recommended tag.

2018 Gift Guide: Trimmings & Decor, Design*Sponge

The most memorable gifts Ive ever received all have one thing in common: Big or small, they were extremely thoughtful. One gift in particular comes to mind, though. I was so nervous the first time my boyfriend Aaron and I exchanged gifts for Valentines Day. Id never been in a serious relationship before, and all I wanted was for him to love what Id picked out. Not only that, Ive never been the greatest gift receiver. I always worry too much about my reaction.

That first V-Day together we laughed and smiled as we read cards to one another, until he handed me a tiny box. As I opened it, my face genuinely lit up. Inside was a wallet-sized booklet of coupons to 20 or so coffee shops around the city. Aaron knew I loved to write and unwind at the many coffee spots around town, oftentimes going out of my way to find a cool new drink flavor. Now, all I had to do was take the booklet to the counter of a local shop, show it to the barista and theyd let me choose a drink off of a menu customized for those in the know. For a year that booklet went everywhere with me as I slowly made my way down the list. And every time I went to use it, I thought of all the time and love Aaron had put into finding me something special.

Building a super-fast and secure website with a CMS is no big deal. Or is it? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Can I break your site? Do you have any leftover scripts there that I can take advantage of? Is there a way to steal your credentials and change content on your site? Can I access private information? No? Are you sure? Or, am I never going to find out because your page takes ages to load?

At some point when creating a website you need to think about performance and security. It does not matter if youre working on your personal website, or your clients website. It is the same as backing up your local files. There are people who do regular backups, and people who have not yet lost any, so are less inclined to do it.

Traditional CMS

If you are using a traditional content management system (CMS), the situation is more complicated for you. These systems contain lots of features. They need to cover all potential use-cases any website might have. That means code. A lot of code. Thousands of files. And, thats not allthe administration interfaces need to provide a nice UI for you to configure all these features. Potentially, another few thousand files.


Its not your code, right? So it should already be secure. Well, many CMS vendors try their best to ensure their implementations are secure. They still have to cover a lot of files. And, every single file may contain an error, some code that was left behind, or maybe a querystring parameter that exposes a database. That in itself can create a potential vulnerability.

Using open-source CMS can be even more dangerous, as the implementation is publicly known. Yes, you can argue that open-source is advantageous. Anyone can contribute and fix found issues. But, this only covers issues that are already known. Attackers would probably keep their exploits to themselves. Even if an issue was found and fixed, you still need to put a lot of effort into making sure your website is kept up-to-date. You have to perform upgrades every time a security hotfix is released.

If you are interested in real-world statistics, take a look at hacked website report by Sucuri.

So, what would attackers want to do with your website? Essentially, they want to get hold of your data, so they can misuse your website by:

  • Getting access to your database through one of the scripts. This is usually the case of custom leftover scripts, testing pages, and others.
  • Compromising and misusing your secret data. Configuration files are a typical storage option for various secret keys and credentials to other services or databases.
  • Modifying your website content.
  • Making your website inaccessible, i.e. shu...


5 Unusual Things To Pickle "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

5 Unusual Things To Pickle

By KJ Barber
November 16, 2018 10:14

When it comes to pickling we usually think of the classic options, such as cucumbers and peppers. But there is a whole world of pickling available, covering foods most people wouldnt ever consider did you ever think of pickling watermelon, apples, corn, or even pork?
Any of these foods, and many more, can be pickled. The art of pickling has been around for ages, because it not only preserves and extends the shelf life of foods, but also has the ability to take their flavor to a completely new and interesting place. The general rule is that if its edible and fits in a jar, it can probably be pickled.
Lets take a look at some of the more interesting foods for pickling, and then I will get to a pickled pumpkin recipe later in the article.
Interesting Foods You Can Pickle
New trends with pickling go way beyond pickles. Some of these foods have been pickled for decades, but the popularity of the method is growing significantly as people seek ways to preserve and enhance various foods.
Take meat, for example. You can pickle pork with a simple salt base, or add various ingredients to alter the flavor a little or a lot. Some ideas for added flavor include sugar, garlic, onion, thyme, allspice, berries, peppers, and much more. The great thing about pickling is that you can alter the taste to your preferences, rather than buy someone elses off the shelf.
Related: How To Preserve Beef in Glass Jars
Watermelon is another food thats becoming a popular choice for preservation. Were not talking about the meat of the melon that we normally consume; its the white part of the rind that is pickled.
Once pickled its often consumed on its own as a treat, or used as a tasty addition to other foods such as turkey, dressing, or turnip greens.
Pickling corn is a great way to enjoy the fresh flavor of summer corn all through the year. It can be pickled with a simple salt base, or you can add other herbs and seasonings for a change in flavor. Rather than opening a store-bought can of corn, open your own, which was created with your own customized flavor profile.
And then theres apples. The abundance of apples in fall will give you plenty of raw material for pickling and the results can be quite tasty! The best part about pickling apples for the first time is you can do a small batch to see if you like the recipe, then make a larger batch later when you find the ideal mix of ingredients.
Other interesting food items you might not have considered for pickling include:
Brussel Sprouts


This Artist Brilliantly Uses Different Jigsaw Puzzles to Create Surreal Mashups "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Montage Puzzle Art by Tim Klein

Daisy Bindi
Made from the pieces of two small Springbok puzzles published in 1987, one showing a cat and one showing a basket of flowers.

While many jigsaw junkies enjoy making order out of chaos, Vancouver-based artist Tim Klein breaks the rules by playing the game his own creative way. After discovering that manufacturing companies tend to reuse the same shaped pieces for multiple puzzles, Klein decided to have some fun by combining the interchangeable parts to make his own montage puzzle art.

Klein prefers to use vintage puzzles from thrift stores and garage sales, across a range of themes and subjects. The imagery in jigsaw puzzles published nowadays tends to be very busy, often consisting of densely-packed collages constructed with Photoshop, says Klein. But for my purposes, I favor puzzles from pre-digital years, when the picture was typically a photograph of a single subject, such as a galloping horse or a ballerina or the Empire State Building. The random nature of Kleins medium results in surreal artworks that might make you chuckle, but some also visualize deeper meanings.

In one puzzle mashupmade using pieces from two Golden Guild puzzles from the 1980sKlein merges a North Carolina mansion with Mt. Jefferson, seamlessly merging nature with the manmade. In others, Klein comically mixes up puzzle pieces from animal photos, creating his own hybrid creatures. I take great pleasure in discovering such bizarre images lying latent, sometimes for decades, within the pieces of ordinary mass-produced puzzles, reveals Klein. As I shift the pieces back and forth, trying different combinations, I feel like an archaeologist unearthing a hidden artifact.

How to create Angular 6 Custom Elements and Web Components "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

6 Steps to create Angular elements using Angular CLI

Angular 6 elements

After reading the official documentation for Angular elements I realized that it lacks the implementation part in a structured manner. That is the reason I am stating the steps to get going!

1. Install Angular CLI 6 and create a new project

npm i -g @angular/cli
ng new angular-custom-elements

As Angular introduced the concept of custom elements in Angular 6 we must have v6 or later installed. You can also add the--style flag to set the default style extension.

2. Add elements package

Custom elements are not completely implemented by all the browsers. Hence we require Polyfills to get them working. With the new CLI command ng add you can add the Angular library and the required polyfills:

ng add @angular/elements

3. Create a component

Lets create a component that will act as a custom element by the end of this post:

ng g component button --inline-style --inline-template -v Native

We are using ViewEncapsulation.Native to bundle all the styles, template and component class code in a single file.

4. Add properties to the component

After making a few changes our button component looks like:

IDE: VS Code, Theme: Atom One Dark

According to the official docs:

The creation API parses the component looking for input properties, and defines corresponding attributes for the custom element.
It transforms the property names to make them compatible with custom elements, which do not recognize case distinctions. The resulting attribute names use dash-separated lowercase. For example, for a component with @Input('myInputProp') inputProp, the corresponding custom element defines an attribute my-input-prop.

And also:

Component outputs are dispatched as HTML Custom Events, with the name of the custom ev...

Man Excitedly Points Out Turnstile T-Shirt Spotted in News Report on Triple Homicide "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

COLUMBUS Local man Louis Contreras enthusiastically noted Monday morning that a man wearing a Turnstile T-shirt was in the background of a breaking news report detailing a grisly triple homicide, according to sources.

Haha! Shit, they had those exact shirts for sale at the Now Thats Class gig in Cleve-O! Contreras said over the local reporters description of a victim found beaten and stabbed over 16 times in an abandoned building nearby. I was gonna buy one, too, but they were all out of mediums. Fuck!

Fearing he had missed the point entirely, Contreras girlfriend, Monica Curley, reportedly spoke up.

That is so awful, she said. To see a total poser in a shirt like that. I mean, they only showed his face for a second, but his fade was wack and I think I saw holes left over from snakebite piercings. I bet he was into Code Orange or some other Mickey Mouse hardcore til the big T got cool. That shit drives me nuts.

Despite Contreras and Curleys reactions, other residents expressed deep concerns about an incredibly dangerous murderer on the loose.

This happened less than a block away from this apartment complex, and they have no idea where this guy may be, so were all incredibly worried and staying vigilant, said neighbor Dan Winslow. Luckily, this community is very tight-knit, and Im sure all of the residents here are paying incredibly close attention to every detail so we all stay safe.

Just before the anchor broke new information regarding the possible whereabouts of the killer, however, Contreras allegedly muted the television to call up one of his boys with the crucial deets about the Turnstile shirt.

I called my boy Skritty and told him to turn on Channel 5 to see homie reppin the Tribe! Contreras explained. And then I heard the lady on TV say something about a bomb. Think she was talking about that track from the new record? I guess well never know for sure.

PMID: 29803096 Abstract Title:  Small-sized microplastics and pigmented particles in bottled mineral water. Abstract:  Up to now, only a few studies about microparticle contamination of bottled mineral water have been published. The smallest analysed particle size was 5m. However, due to toxicological reasons, especially microparticles smaller than 1.5m are critically discussed. Therefore, in the present study, 32 samples of bottled mineral water were investigated for contamination by microplastics, pigment and additive particles. Due to the applicationof aluminium coated polycarbonate membrane filters and micro-Raman spectroscopy, a lowest analysed particle size of 1m was achieved. Microplastics were found in water from all bottle types: in single use and reusable bottles made of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) as well as in glass bottles. The amount of microplastics in mineral water varied from 26492857 per litre in single use PET bottles up to 629210521 per litre in glass bottles. While in plastic bottles, the predominant polymer type was PET; in glass bottles various polymers such as polyethylene or styrene-butadiene-copolymer were found. Hence, besides the packaging itself, other contamination sources have to be considered. Pigment particles were detected in high amounts in reusable, paper labelled bottles (195047330810 pigment particles per litre in glass and 2359425518 pigment particles per litre in reusable paper labelled PET bottles). Pigment types found in water samples were the same as used for label printing, indicating the bottle cleaning process as possible contamination route. Furthermore, on average 7081024 particles per litre of the additive Tris(2,4-di-tert-butylphenyl)phosphite were found in reusable PET bottles. This additive might be leached out from the bottle material itself. Over 90% of the detected microplastics and pigment particles were smaller than 5m and...

Abstract:  The study investigates the content of microplastic particles in freshwater and drinking water. Specifically, three water treatment plants (WTPs) supplied by different kinds of water bodies were selected and their raw and treated water was analysed for microplastics (MPs). Microplastics were found in all water samples and their average abundance ranged from 147334 to 3605497particlesLin raw water and from 33876 to 62828particlesLin treated water, depending on the WTP. This study is one of very few that determine microplastics down to the size of 1m, while MPs smaller than 10m were the most plentiful in both raw and treated water samples, accounting for up to 95%. Further, MPs were divided into three categories according to their shape. Fragments clearly prevailed at two of the WTPs and fibres together with fragments predominated atone case. Despite 12 different materials forming the microplastics being identified, the majority of the MPs (>70%) comprised of PET (polyethylene terephthalate), PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene). This study contributes to fill the knowledge gap in the field of emerging microplastic pollution of drinking water and water sources, which is of concern due to the potential exposure of microplastics to humans.

PMID: 29145085 Abstract Title:  Analysis of microplastics in water by micro-Raman spectroscopy: Release of plastic particles from different packaging into mineral water. Abstract:  Microplastics are anthropogenic contaminants which have been found in oceans, lakes and rivers. Investigations focusing on drinking water are rare and studies have mainly been using micro-Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (-FT-IR). A major limitation of this technique is its inability to detect particles smaller than 20 m. However, micro-Raman spectroscopy is capable of detecting even smaller particle sizes. Therefore, we show that this technique, which was used in this study, is particularly useful in detectingmicroplastics in drinking water where particle sizes are in the low micrometer range. In our study, we compared the results from drinking water distributed in plastic bottles, glass bottles and beverage cartons. We tested the microplastic content of water from 22 different returnable and single-useplastic bottles, 3 beverage cartons and 9 glass bottles obtained from grocery stores in Germany. Small (-50-500 m) and very small (1-50 m) microplastic fragments were found in every type of water. Interestingly, almost 80% of all microplastic particles found had a particle size between 5 and 20 m and were therefore not detectable by the analytical techniques used in previous studies. The average microplastics content was 118  88 particles/l in returnable, but only 14  14 particles/l in single-use plastic bottles. The microplastics content in the beverage cartons was only 11  8 particles/l. Contrary to our assumptions we found high amounts of plastic particles in some of the glass bottled waters (range 0-253 particles/l, mean 50  52 particles/l). A statistically significant difference from the blank value (14  13) to the investigated packaging types could onlybe shown comparing to the returnable bottles (p

The Supreme Court Did Not Deem Vaccines "Unavoidably Unsafe," Congress Did. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

CongressBy Ginger Taylor, MS

There is an error that is often made when we talk about the "Unavoidably Unsafe" status of FDA approved vaccines.  It may seem like a small point, but it is important to be accurate.

Someone, somewhere, sometime, long, long ago and far away, said that, "The US Supreme Court has ruled that vaccines are unavoidably unsafe," referencing the use of the term in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth.  And it has been repeated over and over.  But it is not accurate.

Congress placed vaccines in that category, and SCOTUS was merely referencing the already established status of the products.

It is correct to say that "US Law regards vaccines as unavoidably unsafe."

But Congress itself did that, not the Supreme Court.  

Feel free to remind a member of Congress of that fact if he makes the false claim that, "Vaccines Are Safe."

From Mary Holland JD, Director of the Graduate Legal studies program at NYU Law School:

"The key language about unavoidable side effects comes from the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, 42 USC 300aa-22, re manufacturer responsibility (see highlighted text below).

That language was based on language from the Second Restatement of Torts (a legal treatise by tort scholars), adopted by most state courts in the mid-1960s, that considered all vaccines as unavoidably unsafe products.

DIY: Treat Yourself Pine Serving Tray "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Tis the season and I, for one, am very much all about respecting my need for downtime during the holidays this year. That discipline includes several breakfast-in-bed-just-for-me scenarios. If youd like to indulge in this downtime treat yourself, then read on for a simple DIY made with our friends at Fiskars in mind. You may remember our yay yay yay! post earlier this month where we introduced their new, easy-to-use line of precision tools for makers, artists and DIYers. Todays Pine Serving Tray DIY is inspired by those tools, with a big hello and nudge to the hand saw that fits in ones hand like a bouquet of flowers.

Note that if you have some wood lying around from another project or maybe just an unused wall shelf, just grab the new Fiskars saw and trim it down to a tray size that works for you. Pine is a great choice this season since it screams hygge, but if youre over it, find a piece that works for you, obviously. And, of course, if the holidays energize you and youll find yourself awake at 5am each day humming Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, you can probably whip up this DIY before anyone else in your household wakes up and then you can surprise them with breakfast in bed. In either case, this...


BCH Tussle: Bitcoin ABC May Reign Supreme over Craig Wrights Satoshi Vision "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

To the chagrin of Craig Wright and his camp, it has become increasingly apparent that Jihan Wu, Roger Ver, and their compatriots at Bitcoin ABC have taken a leading position in the Bitcoin Cash Civil War. So, after weeks, if not months of trash talking, cryptos most recent shouting match has begun to come to a screeching halt.

Bitcoin ABC Leaves SV in the Dust

After months of anticipation, crypto investors woke up giddy on Thursday morning, as the scheduled Bitcoin Cash hard fork remained at the forefront of this industrys mind. In the hours preceding the network upgrade, banter regarding Bitcoin Cashs proposed future began to ramp up, with everyone and their mother quipping about this conflict.

Craig Wright, dubbed Faketoshi, issued the following message on Twitter just hours before the fork, furthering his sentiment that his enemies, which comprise of Bitmain,, and other industry hotshots, are scammers and nonsensical.

But, as the upgrade neared, it became clear that something was amok, as rumors arose that Bitmain-backed miners, who are in cahoots with Bitcoin ABC (ABC) were poised to meet this fork head-on. And, of course, these rumors materialized into reality as ABC quickly overtook Craig Wrights Satoshi Vision (SV) following the upgrade, which activated during Bitcoin Cashs 556767th block.

Within minutes, even though Bitcoin ABC suffered a suspected spam attack, Roger Vers client of choice left SV in the dust due to the influx of hashrate that ABC experienced.

For APECs poorest member, flashy cars point to another boondoggle "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit that opens in Port Moresby this week is supposed to be a showcase of Papua New Guineas hosting, but the run-up to the event has been overshadowed by fast cars. Italian-made Maseratis, mostly 40 of them, flown in on specially chartered cargo flights as well as three Bentleys. At a reported $148,000 per Maserati, and an estimated freight cost of at least $1.2 million, this outlay by the poorest of the APEC member states has put the government of Prime Minister Peter ONeill in the spotlight. ONeills APEC minister, Justin Tkatchenko, has justified the move, saying in a statement that the cars will provide the level of carriage for [world] Leaders that is the standard for vehicles used at APEC Summits. He also said the cars would be paid for by the private sector, but gave no details. ONeill was reported as saying separately that they would be auctioned off after the summit. But the extravagant spending has struck a nerve in a country where basic infrastructure and services are severely lacking. Thousands took part in an Oct. 26 Maserati Strike, including public bus drivers in the northern city of Lae. The spending on the summit at large has come at the expense of the health system, the education system, rural infrastructure, law and order, government finances and the economy, and employment, Mekere Morauta, an opposition member of parliament, said in a statement.

Activists urge end to South Korean funding of Indonesia coal plants "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

JAKARTA Environmental activists in Indonesia have called on South Korean funders to withdraw their support for new coal-fired plants that they warn will be the most polluting in the Southeast Asian country. The Suralaya power complex, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of the capital, Jakarta, already has eight coal-fired plants in operation, churning out 3,400 megawatts, or 18 percent of the electricity for the islands of Java and Bali. The government plans to add two more plants, with a generating capacity of 1,000 MW each, as part of the infrastructure-centered economic development policy being pushed by the administration of President Joko Widodo. Funding for the new plants, billed at $1.67 billion, will come from loans from the Export-Import Bank of Korea (KEXIM), the Korea Development Bank (KDB Bank) and the Korea Trade Insurance Corporation (K-sure). Greenpeace Indonesia energy campaigner Didit Haryo said the group had sent an open letter appealing to the South Korean institutions to immediately withdraw their funding for the project. The impact of the new plants is too big and is very bad for their investments, he said. Were urging them to think about investing their money in renewable energy projects instead. Greenpeace Indonesia also sent the letter to the South Korean Embassy in Jakarta; none of the recipients had responded as of Nov. 9, Didit said. Suralaya coal power plants. Image by Satari/Wikimedia.

SAN DIEGO Only 15 miles separate San Diego and Tijuana. Together, the border cities comprise the largest binational metropolitan region in the world, cut in half by the worlds most trafficked international border. Each city has approximately 1.3 million residents and yet their urban realities exist in stark contrast: a sprawling wealthy metropolis on one side and dense, informal settlements on the other. Despite the cities political and economic differences, a vibrant cultural community has emerged in San Diego and Tijuana that recognizes where the cities diverge but also where they overlap. The diverse group of artists that calls these two cities home is the catalyst for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diegos (MCASD) current exhibition Being Here With You / Estando aqu contigo: 42 Artists from San Diego and Tijuana.

Saudi Attacks Leave Hodeida Hospital Inaccessible and 1,500 Pregnant Yemeni Women at Risk, UN Warns "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

HODEIDA, YEMEN The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) recently warned that as many as 1,500 pregnant women in the besieged Yemeni port city of Hodeida are at risk of death now that the citys only hospital capable of providing emergency care services has become inaccessible due to the fighting.

In a statement issued Wednesday, UNFPAs Director for the Arab region, Dr. Luay Shabaneh, wrote that the agency feared that:

Among the 10,000 pregnant women caught in the fighting in Hodeida City, the lives of an estimated 1,500 who are likely to encounter complications during pregnancy and childbirth might be at risk as the citys only hospital [al-Thawra hospital] that can provide emergency care becomes inaccessible.

UN statement Yemen Hodeida

Shabaneh went on to note that the al-Thawra Hospital has been forced to take on the majority of Hodeidas civilians in need of medical assistance because health facilities across Hodeida are closed or functioning at minimum capacity, while others have been captured by the Saudi-led coalition. As a result, the hospitals neonatal care facility sees 400 to 500 deliveries per month, including more than 200 caesarian sections.

Without access to the hospital, over a thousand women likely to need caesarian sections, or other emergency care relating to childbirth and pregnancy complications, now face the risk of life-threatening complications, not to mention the risk to their unborn children.

A Specially Adapted Underwater Wheelchair Brings Artist Sue Austin Beneath the Earths Surface "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

British artist Sue Austin creates multimedia, performance, and installation art, using her wheelchair as a means to explore new patterns of movement. In 2012, Austin was commissioned to create a series of multimedia events as part of that years Cultural Olympiad, in conjunction with the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. The result, titled Creating the Spectacle! is a spectacular immersive dance performance and underwater exploration, which was shot near Shark el Sheik, Egypt by Norman Lomax of Moving Content. You can watch a portion of the film below.

In the film, Austin uses her arms to guide her through the water, and she wears a summery dress with her long hair flowing freely, as she navigates through schools of fish and past massive coral reefs. Her underwater wheelchair is adapted from a standard-issue National Health Service chair, with battery powered propellers and perspex aerofoils to control turns. Austin hopes that the adaptations will be more widely available at diving centers in the future to make diving more inclusive.

A statement on her website explains, she aims to find dramatic and powerful ways to re-position disability and Disability Arts as the Hidden Secret. She argues that this secret, if explored, valued and then shared, can act to heal the divisions created in the social psyche by cultural dichotomies that define the disabled as other.

Austin first performed with her underwater wheelchair in Dorset, U.K. in 2012, and has since performed, shown films, and spoken around the world about her art practice. You can learn more about Austin and her organization Freewheeling, on her website, and watch her TED Talk here. (via #WOMENSART)



How to use events in Node.js the right way "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Before event-driven programming became popular, the standard way to communicate between different parts of an application was pretty straightforward: a component that wanted to send out a message to another one explicitly invoked a method on that component. But event-driven code is written to react rather than be called.

The Benefits Of Eventing

This approach causes our components to be much more decoupled. As we continue to write an application, we identify events along the way. We fire them at the right time and attach one or more event listeners to each one. Extending functionality becomes much easier. We can add on more listeners to a particular event. We are not tampering with the existing listeners or the part of the application where the event was fired from. What were talking about is the Observer pattern.

Designing An Event-Driven Architecture

Identifying events is pretty important. We dont want to end up having to remove/replace existing events from the system. This might force us to delete/modify any number of listeners that were attached to the event. The general principle I use is to consider firing an event only when a unit of business logic finishes execution.

So say you want to send out a bunch of different emails after a users registration. Now, the registration process itself might involve many complicated steps, and queries. But from a business point of view, it is one step. And each of the emails to be sent out are individual steps as well. So it would make sense to fire an event as soon as registration finishes. We have multiple listeners attached to it, each responsible for sending out one type of email.

Nodes asynchronous, event-driven architecture has certain kinds of objects called emitters. They emit named events which cause functions called listeners to be invoked. All objects that emit events are instances of the EventEmitter class. Using it, we can create our own events:

An Example

Lets use the built-in events module (which I encourage you to check out in detail) to gain access to EventEmitter.

This is the part of the applicat...


Easter Islanders Are Visiting British Museum to Request Repatriation of Ancestral Heritage "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Easter Island (via cdschocks Flickrstream)

Next week, a delegation of Rapa Nui people, indigenous to Easter Island, will travel to London to meet with British Museum administrators about their request to repatriate Hoa Hakananaia. The eight-foot, four-ton statue, whose name means the stolen or hidden friend, was taken from the island in 1868 by Royal Navy captain Richard Powell and then bestowed to Queen Victoria.

Hoa Hakananaia is one of nearly 1,000 moai statues carved from volcanic rock in the history of the island, each of which has a strong spiritual and cultural value for the Rapa Nui community. The statue has been housed in the British Museum for over a century and serves as one of its most popular artifacts, but the Rapa Nui people have been actively campaigning for its return.

We want the museum to understand that the moai are our family, not just rocks. For us [the statue] is a brother; but for them it is a souvenir or an attraction, a member of the Easter Island development commission, Anakena Manutomatoma, told the Guardian. Once eyes are added to the statues, an energy is breathed into the moai and they become the living embodiment of ancestors whose role is to protect us.

To recover Hoa Hakananaia would be great, but with time we will be asking the other countries to return our ancestors, Manutomatoma says. Multiple moai are on display in museums across the world.

Hooked on hooks: how to use Reacts useReducer() "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by Pascal van de Vendel on Unsplash

So the React Conference just happened and as always something new happened. Hooks happened! The React team talked about suspense, lazy loading, concurrent rendering, and hooks :D.

Now Ill talk about my favorite hook useReducer and how you use it.

In my PokemonInfo component, I have:

const [{ count, loading }, dispatch] = useReducer(reducer, initialState);

Which is equivalent to:

const [state, dispatch] = useReducer(initialState);
const { count, loading } = state;

So what is const [state, dispatch] = useReducer(param1, param2) Lets first talk about array destructuing which is happening below.

const [state, dispatch] = useReducer(initialState);

Heres an example of array destructing:

let myHeroes = ['Ant man', 'Batman']; // Mixing DC & Marvel :D
let [marvelHero, dcHero] = myHeroes; // destructuring array
* myHeroes[0] == marvelHero => is 'Ant man'
* myHeroes[1] == dcHero => is 'Batman'

So the method useReducer has two items in its array state and dispatch. Also the useReducer takes in two parameters: one is reducer the other is initial-state.

In the useReducer param reducer, I pass in:

What this does is it takes in two arguments. One is the current state of the reducer and the other is the action. The action.type decides how it will update the reducer and return a new state to us.

So if the action.type === increment

case 'increment':...

I Shot Ultra-Macro Video of the Wet Plate Collodion Process "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Normally I use videos to document my work. This time the video is the main outcome of my work I shot an ultra-macro video that shows how the crystals/salts change during the wet plate collodion process.

I did this project because I got asked a lot about how the process works. Questions like what happens during fixing? or what changes when the tintype runs dry? and so on. As you can imagine, I tried to explain every aspect of this process, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Thats the reason for this video.

What I did not know was that the outcome would be this amazing theyre mesmerizing pictures from another world. Our jaws dropped during the first video of the developer doing its work. I say our because my good friend Erich helped me capturing the process. Thanks again for everything! Another great guy who made this project possible is Reinhold of Glaserei who made the little glass containers I was filming the chemicals through. More information about that later.

First, I want to show you all the two videos that resulted. All closeup macro videos of the chemicals were done with the Laowa 5x ultra macro lens without any CGI!

Wife Reads Out Husbands Affair Texts Instead Of Vows At Wedding "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Wedding days are a nerve-racking time for most involved, but usually its the good kind of nerves. You know the type: butterflies in your stomach, your heart racing in anticipation for the next step in your life.

One bride-to-be experienced a completely different type of nerves though when she stood at the alter and revealed the sordid details of her husband-to-bes affair to her wedding congregation.

You see, the night before her wedding she revealed a number of texts from a number she didnt recognise, exposing her fiancs double life and turning her world upside down.

The woman, Casey*, told all in a post on Whimn, revealing how she came to terms with her alleged betrayal and got revenge in the most dramatic way.

The night before her wedding, the bride-to-be had been enjoying drinks with her bridesmaids when her phone buzzed. She walked over to it, expecting to see a message of congratulations in anticipation for the big day.

What she didnt expect was a number of texts from an unknown number, showing screenshots between her fianc, Alex*, and another woman. She claims the screenshots were accompanied by a message, reading I wouldnt marry him. Will you?

As proof, the woman sent pictures of her with Alex, along with texts between the two which detailed their affair dating from months to just days before.

The texts ranged from:

This weekend. You and I. It is on, hot stuff. Bring your A game.

Your Ultimate Guide to Writing QA Documentation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Testing your average software solution is a tiresome and elaborate task. Moreover, if you need a decent piece of code, theres no way out of testing. Yet you can make your life a little bit easier by creating a proper QA documentation. The documentation saves a ton of time by streamlining your testing processes. Its also your go-to asset in case something goes off the rails with the project.

This article is the second part of Your Ultimate Guide to Writing Test Documents. In the first part, we went through 6 topics:

  1. Checklists
  2. The Reasons for Creating a Test Case
  3. How to Create the Test Case
  4. The Lifecycle of the Test Case
  5. Test Suits
  6. Typical Errors When Creating a Test Document

If youd like a review of any of those topics, please check out that article.

Now, lets continue our deep dive into writing a QA documentation. In this article, we are going to discuss five more topics:

  1. Defect Reports
  2. The Lifecycle of a Defect Report
  3. Typical Errors When Creating a Defect Report
  4. Test Plans
  5. Test Progress Report

1. Defect Reports

A defect report is a roadmap for getting a bug-free software. In short, the report describes any unwanted issue with your solution. It sounds simple until you start documenting. Below you can see an example of a typical defect report.

Lets go through every section of the defect report:

  1. The identifier is your unique value for recognizing a specific defect report in a sea of others.
  2. The summary is your laconic answer to three simple questions What happened?, Where? and Under what circumstances?
  3. The description is where you show the bug in all the details. You should describe the actual and the expected results. Moreover, its a good idea to provide a link to your software requirements.
  4. Then, you write about the steps to reproduce (STR). Dont miss a step or your report may end up in a trash folder. 
  5. In the reproducibility, you show if the bug appears every time you follow the STR.
  6. The severity shows how harmful the bug is to the project. Dont exaggerate becau...


Denied Entry, Cats Try to Paw Past Japanese Museum Security Guard "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A superstitious person would say that the sudden appearance of a black cat on your doorstep is a bad omen, but the opposite is true for Japans Hiroshima Onomichi City Museum of Art.

When the curious feline first appeared at the museum two years ago in the summer of 2016, the only thing it brought was good publicity.

It was only days after the museums opening of Cats Mitsuaki Iwago Photography Exhibition that the buildings security guard had a charming standoff with a black cat named Ken-chan, who belongs to the owners of a nearby restaurant. The standoff was caught on camera and promptly posted to social media. A serendipitous and lighthearted exchange, the cats arrival proved just how eager the aristocat was to sample some high culture.

But then the cat came back the very next day. And the day after, too.


How does tokenization work, anyway? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Not everything will be tokenized, but that which can be will be.

2017 saw the hype of utility tokens and ICOs. 2018 marks the hyped start of asset tokenization and the launch of securities tokens/platforms. This trend is notably huge in the U.S, given how A16z and GGV Capital invested in the likes of tokenization platforms like TrustToken, Harbor, and Polymath.

In Asia, the trend is starting to pick up too. For instance, Rate3 Network was funded by various notable Asian VCs that include Matrix Partners China and Fenbushi Capital.

Conceptually, tokenization might seem easy: Issue an ERC-20 token (or any other blockchain tokens), imbue legal rights and ownership rights in the tokens, and you can trade them easily. However, this warrants a much deeper look: how do you distinguish claim rights and ownership rights? What are the differences in tokenization between different asset classes? What is impeding tokenization from adoption?

Thinking comprehensively about tokenization requires an understanding of blockchains and smart contracts, legal, finance, and economics. There has already been in-depth research on each of these components.

In this piece, I want to give a comprehensive introduction to tokenization through using real estate as a primary example. Heres what well discuss:

For professional and amateur panoramic photographers alike, theres no better competition than The EPSON International Pano Awards. Now in its ninth year, the contest features the best in elongated photographs capturing the majestic beauty of the world at large. The 2018 contest received nearly 5,000 entries from 1,251 photographers in 74 countries, which undoubtedly made for stiff competition and hard decisions from the panel of judges. The winners were awarded more than $50,000 in cash and prizes.

Judging on technical skill, creativity, and storytelling, the International Pano Awards selected winners across its open and amateur competitions, as well as VR/360 imagery. From there, they were divided into two additional categories: Landscape and the Built Environment.

Photographer Veselin Atanasov took home the top prize as the overall winner for the 2018 Open Competition. His work featured a sun-drenched photo of an idyllic countryside. I shot this picture during one spring morning in 2017 in Tuscany, he recalled. I remember that I had a 70-200mm lens attached to my camera, and the scene in front of me required a wide-angle lens. The sun was quickly rising upward and I decided not to miss this moment while replacing a lens, so I shot the scene through the panorama of several frames from my hand without a tripod.

Surgical Robot Botches Surgery, Kills Man on Operating Table While Doctors Sipped Lattes "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This article was originally published by Ethan Huff at Natural News

In the name of scientific progress, Newcastles Freeman Hospital in the United Kingdom recently tried to pioneer the use of a surgical robot that it tasked with repairing a patients damaged heart valve, only to have the machine go completely bonkers and ultimately kill the man on the operating table.

According to reports, this first-time-use robot not only physically assaulted a living medic while attempting to conduct its programmed surgery, but also implanted stitches into the patients heart in a manner that physicians present during the fiasco described as not being in an organised fashion.

A situation that can only be described as total chaos, with human surgeons, doctors, and nurses having to scream at each other in order to overcome the tinny sound coming from the robot as they were trying to control it, the attempted surgery ended up being nothing short of a complete failure. And in the end, retired music teacher and conductor, Stephen Pettitt, the guinea pig patient in this medical experiment, ultimately lost his life.

Lead surgeon admits that he was ill-prepared to operate the surgical robot, having skipped multiple training sessions

During a hearing that followed this catastrophe, lead surgeon Sukumaran Nair admitted that he lacked proper experience in controlling and using the surgical robot, stating that he was running before he could walk. In other words, it was truly a case of medical negligence and malpractice on steroids.

As later revealed by the U.K.s Daily Mail Online, Nair not only missed a critical training session in Paris that would have taught him how to properly use the surgical robot, but he also wasnt present for another training sessions that later took place at his own hospital, claiming that he was busy with another surgery at the time.

BUENOS AIRES The forced displacement of Venezuelans due to violence and hyperinflation continues every day, occupying headlines in the West and discussions internationally. The seriousness of this crisis affects the whole region, so it is not a coincidence that two established Latin American artists from different generations, Beatriz Gonzlez (born in 1938, in Bucaramanga, Colombia) and Teresa Margolles (born in 1963, in Culiacn, Mexico), represent people crossing the VenezuelaColombia border in their recent work. They seek to capture the pain and loss of the migrants and border workers, while unveiling the political and economic mechanisms that cause them, namely, Venezuelan President Nicols Maduros regime. 

The radicalization and collapse of the Bolivarian Revolution has led to the exile of millions of Venezuelans, separating families and causing enormous economic loss to the country. Since 2014, people have been crossing legally and illegally into the Andes on foot and to the Caribbean islands on rafts, resulting in the worst migration crisis ever in South America. According to the United Nations, 2.6 million Venezuelans have migrated since 2014 to other countries in South America. Projections indicate that by the end of 2018 it will total three million. There is talk of granting them the standing of refugees; in an interview, the exiled opposition leader and former mayor of El Hatillo, David Smolansky, said, All the conditions already exist to give Venezuelans refugee status, which allows for concrete guarantees of assistance from the international community, providing protection and working permits. He also added that the Venezuelan displacement crisis is only surpassed in magnitude by Syria, but it is happening without being in a war or a natural catastrophe.



The Color Photography of Vivian Maier "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Vivian Maier is the nanny and American street photographer who posthumously became internationally famous after a 26-year-old real estate agent bought a box of 30,000 of her negatives at an estate sale for $400 in 2007. In addition to her captivating black-and-white photos, Maier also captured color images, some of which are being published in a book for the first time ever.

Vivian Maier: The Color Work is a new 240-page hardcover book containing over 150 of Maiers color photographs. Its the first definitive monograph of color photographs by American street photographer Vivian Maier.

The photos in the book were drawn from the roughly 40,000 Ektachrome color slides found among the tens of thousands of negatives, film rolls, and prints that the self-taught photographer quietly left behind after her death in the late 2000s. They span about 30 years of her life from the 1970s to the 1990s and were shot in New York and Chicago using a 35mm camera.

And while her black-and-white photos of American life decades ago have been widely published, her color images have received far less publicity.

Maier shied away from the public eye and stashed her lifetime body of work in storage facilities prior to the trove being discovered. And with how prolific her photography was, its likely that many of the photos being published now went unseen by the photographer herself.

Its not certain that she ever opened the boxes and saw the results herself, book curator Colin Westerbeck writes in the intro.

Tom Evans, Austin, TX

I built this studio in 1997 for a large scale public art project for Austins new airport terminal. When I say I built it, I mean me, with a hammer and nails, not a hired construction crew. It is 24 by 36 feet, with a 16-foot ceiling. The building is a cross between a pole barn and a greenhouse, so can I rely mainly on natural light coming through fiberglass panels.

The two main easels you see here are repurposed electric drafting table pedestals that I converted to easels. The foot pedal at the bottom moves it up and down, and each easel can accommodate a painting up to 10 feet wide. I usually have three to four paintings going at once. Im known as a landscape painter, but I have a lot of animals in my life, and my studio is surrounded by a wildlife preserve, so animals are slowly creeping into my paintings. And thats just fine with me. (Chair on right for scale.)

Bradley Butler, Canandaigua, NY

I have always felt comfortable in basements. As a kid, I spent a lot of my time watching TV alone in the basement, in the dark. I made forts down there; I drew pictures. In college, I used that same basement from my childhood as my painting studio, and then when I went to grad school, the painting studios in the fine arts program were in the basement. I am used to working under artificial light, and I prefer it because it is easy to control, and it is consistent....

10 Ideas for Taking Amazing Photos of Boring Objects "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I dont have an expensive camera. I use a Nikon D3000, which is one of the oldest entry-level DSLRs and I have only an 18-55mm kit lens. Because of this, I have to be creative to make good shots.

I always try to make different photos than the others, but its really hard. There are billions of pictures on the internet, Instagram is full of photographers, and it is really hard to stand out.

If you want people to notice you, forget the standards and take a twist! Here are 10 ideas for making your photos of boring objects stand out.

1. Try different perspective

Instead of shooting the object the same way as everybody else, find a new perspective. Go under your object, above your object, inside if you can just make it different!

2. Make it festive

Use some LED lights or glitter to make your photo festive. You can also use balloons or confetti as well. Now it is not a boring object, its a stunning object!

3. Bokeh

Using lights behind your object and making some colorful (or not) bokeh is one of the simplest ways to make your boring object amazing.

4. Back to the nature

Okay, my object is from nature. But every object looks nicer when you put it among flowers. You can also use trees, leaves, grass or anything from nature. It will give your object a fresh, lively look.



How Breast Milk Affects Babies Gut Microbes Differently than Formula "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When feeding baby, breast is always best. A recent study shows that both breast milk and formula encourage the growth of similar types of gut microbes, but the bacteria from the 2 forms of food work differently. [1]

How those differences affect a childs health are unclear, however.

Having enough good bacteria in the gut is essential for overcoming disease-causing bacteria, influencing metabolism, and synthesizing many vitamins and amino acids, which are considered the building blocks of life. The makers of infant formula realize this and are working towards creating more gut-friendly recipes.

Read: Mothers Good Gut Bacteria Carried Through Breast Milk, Benefits Baby

Senior study author Gautam Dantas, a professor of pathology and immunology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, said:

Formula makers are continually tweaking their ingredients, and theyve been very successful in eliciting the right mix of bacteria. But almost all of the studies to date have looked at the identity of the bacteria, not what theyre doing. What we found here is that the bacteria might look the same, but theyre not doing the same thing.

For the study, Dantas and his colleagues analyzed the DNA of gut bacteria from 30 sets of twins born in the St. Louis, Missouri, area. The test was repeated every month until the infants in the study reached 8 months of age.

The team also determined which amino acids and other biomolecules housed in the gut were able to synthesize and break down. Metabolic byproducts are produced by gut microbes, and these byproducts influence physiologic functions like nutrition, inflammation, and digestive health. [2]

Read: Breast Milk Found to Protect Against Cancer, Kill Cancer Cells

Additionally, the researchers analyzed 402 fecal samples collected from the infants from 2009 to 2011 and collected information on how parents fed the babies, including the specific brands of formula the parents fed their babies.

During the first few days after birth, breast milk is protein-rich, but those levels soon decline. The study found that the microbiome of breastfed babies compensated for low levels of amino acids by increasing the levels of bacteria that contain a genetic makeup capable of synthesizing such amino acids particularly methionine, isoleucine, leucine, valine, cysteine, serine, threonine, and arg...


Opinion: Magikarp Helped Me Accept Being Useless Until My Twenties "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Like most millennials, the past few years have been rough for me. I had no money, no job, and still lived with my parents. Every time I checked Facebook, I saw my high school friends doing cool shit like getting married and being able to afford to go to the dentist. To be honest, Id lost all hope. Even the kids in Pokmon moved out and started making money when they were like 12.

Then, at my lowest point, I remembered a certain pocket monster that was also trash until it got older. Thats right: Magikarp helped me accept being useless until my twenties.

The more I thought about it, the more similarities I noticed. We both had shitty statsI once broke three ribs just by walking into a doorknob. Neither of us had useful skills either. Magikarp splashed around in every battle, and I curled into a ball whenever the collection agency called about my student loans. He also couldnt learn TMs or HMs, and I havent learned anything new according to all of my exes!

But did Magikarp ever give in? No, not even when he was forced into battle because all your useful Pokemon fainted. That little fish guy used Splash until he ran out of PP or got stomped by his more impressive foe. Talk about persistence! I realized if Magikarp could make it to his twenties and become a sick-ass dragon thing through sheer force of will, I could finally get that job at Costco and find my own apartment.

Looking back, Magikarp saved my life. He taught me it was OK to be a valueless leech who relies on the charity of others. Do I fully understand why my life turned around when I hit my twenties? No, I do not. It is not my place to question the wise and misunderstood Magikarp.

Especially because now Im a badass dragon-snake-fish hybrid with a killer job at Costco and dental insurance.

Mexican Guardians Haunt Familial Portraits by Photographer Diego Moreno "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photographer Diego Moreno incorporates ancestral imagery with a familiar contemporary universe in his series In My Mind There is Never Silence. The artist shares with Colossal that the characters that populate the series draw from his personal family history along with pre-Hispanic Mexican traditions. Each photograph depicts a normal domestic scene: gathering around a table for coffee, getting a hair cut, or playing in the living room with television on in the background. Morenos grotesque guardians are participants in or witnesses to these everyday tableaux, which doesnt seem to surprise or alarm the humans in the room.

Each large, monstrous character, the Panzudo (which translates roughly to paunchy) guards a neighborhood in Chiapas, Mexico, and their size and grotesqueness reflects each individuals scale of sin. He explains, This work gives new meaning to the intricate tangle of the concealed and the visible, the individual and the collective subconscious, on the highly complex map of coexisting cultures and beliefs in contemporary Mexico.

The series will be released as a photobook in 2019. The images will also be on view, representing Latin America, in the 5th African photo biennial in Ethiopia in December, 2018, in the Photo Vogue Festival in Milan, Italy on November 15, 2018. (via Lens Culture)



Experts in Science and Health Join Call to End Fluoridation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A few days ago the Fluoride Action Network* sent out a request to professionals in any medical, scientific, legal, educational, environmental or other field, to sign a New Professionals Statement calling for an end to water fluoridation worldwidesee the list of signers to the new statement.

This New Professionals Statement has been triggered by the publication of very important and disturbing U.S. Government-funded studies (Bashash et al, 2017 and 2018).  These studies have added very strong additional evidence to the large number of existing studies that show that fluoride is neurotoxic. They underline that the critical period of exposure to fluoride is in the womb and that at levels of fluoride exposure currently experienced by pregnant women in fluoridated communities there is a strong correlation with the lowering of IQ and ADHD symptoms in their offspring.

Sadly, and possibly because the imposed dental practice of water fluoridation is so entrenched in the psyche of the medical, dental and public health establishments in fluoridated countries, neither governments not the mainstream media are warning the public about this large and growing body of scientific research.

Thus, we are appealing to professionals to sign this statement. We hope by circulating this it will help us get this information out to more professionals, the public (especially pregnant women), the media and decision-makers in fluoridated countries, and eventually halt this unn...

25 Quick Up Survival Shelters You Can Build With A Tarp "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Explore the full potential of a tarp shelter both for camping and survival situations with this guide to building a quick setup shelter!

Survival Life Guide to Building a Tarp Shelter


Tips for Tarp Shelter Camping

A tarp shelter is one of the easiest temporary shelters you can build. It's also multipurpose and incredibly lightweight. This is why it's so handy since you can easily fold and carry it along with you. With a tarp, a bit of cordage, and a little know-how, you can build a survival shelter in no time.

For surviving the wilderness, having a tarp and some rope can actually save your life as it can provide you shade in the day, warmth at night, or a dry place to stay when it's raining. There are some things you need to consider, though, before you actually set up one. Here are some tips and insights into building a tarp shelter for camping and survival:

1. Selecting a Location

Selecting a Location |

This is probably the most important part in building a tarp shelter, particularly in situations where you only have a tarp and some ropes. When selecting a location, you have to look for a place with some kind of pole, like trees, where you can tie your ropes onto. Look for a place where the distance between those poles is enough to accommodate the size of the tarp and ropes you have.

2. Clear the Vicinity

Clear the Vicinity |

After you've found a place to build your shelter, you've got to clear up the area. Make sure to clear the rocks and other debris to make it comfortable. You also need to check the general direction of the wind. Set your tarp shelter properly so that the wind doesn't blow...

Google searches reveal public interest in conservation is rising "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

OK, Google: Has the general public lost interest in biodiversity conservation? Has peoples interest in environmental issues been overshadowed by climate change alone? The answer to both questions, according to Google searches at least, is No. Public interest in both conservation and climate change seems to be rising, a new study has found. At first, Zuzana Burivalova, a tropical forest ecologist at Princeton University who was also the lead researcher on Mongabays Conservation Effectiveness series, and Rhett Butler, Mongabays founder and CEO, wanted to find out which conservation strategies were getting more popular over time, and which ones were simply fads. But then, some conservation scientists echoed a common sentiment: public support for conservation had been waning in general, and what limited bandwidth the public had for environmental issues was being dominated by climate change. Burivalova also observed that politicians in many countries were moving environmental issues further down on their list of priorities. This would reflect that perhaps people care less about the environment, Burivalova said, and so I was interested to see whether thats really the case. To find out, Burivalova, Butler and David Wilcove, a professor of ecology at Princeton University, turned to the internet. Google searches can be a window to what people are curious about. Google Trends, which measures these searches over time, can in turn be a proxy measure of what the general public is interested in or wants to know more about. Previous studies that have used Google Trends data to gauge peoples searches

Opinion: Whatever Joe Rogan Said Last Week "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

America has never been more divided. Polarization and insane rhetoric have infected our culture. Thats the problem. Its a problem when people just root for their team. But my take? My opinion is whatever Joe Rogan said last week.

And heres the thing: last week Joe Rogan said that a little bit of mushrooms can actually make you run faster. Now, he didnt say how much but this isnt just bro science, bro. This isnt the carnivore diet (a new thing a lot of people are trying out with some success). This is something you can measure and test and is a scientific fact. You get faster.

Sorry, maybe that is getting off track. I dont want to derail the public conversation we are having right now. But, ultimately this topic is pointless, because virtual reality will soon become so realistic we wont leave our houses, and only interact through a digital world. Thats not a matter of if its a matter of when. Think about that, dude.

What youre talking about is interesting to me. It reminds me of the fact that if a bullet were to hit bone, it distorts. Thats just how bullets work. So how did the bullet go through JFKs body, and then through another, hit a wrist bone, and not distort? Look Im not one of those guys that goes into everything with an agenda. I just like to look at the facts, and the fact is that bullet was too intact to be the one that killed JFK.

Honestly Im just glad a long-form conversation like this opinion piece exists. See, these TV shows and articles and everything else they are too short and contrived. The conversation is forced to fit into this little tiny box for commercials and other bullshit. What we really need is a 3 hour long conversation with a hypnotist. Or a conspiracy theorist.

Maybe get Jordan Peterson to break down how Rosanne getting hit in the head as a kid could have played into the Planet of the Apes tweet?

So yeah, the topic doesnt matter but if you want my take on it go to, scroll back one week, and then click on one of the various interviews with a bow hunting expert and thats what I believe.

An Incredible 19th-Century Hair Collection That Nearly Became Trash "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Hair from Thomas Jefferson (17431826), third President of the U.S. (photograph by Rosamond Purcell, courtesy Blast Books)

Peter A. Browne believed a scientific portrait of humanity could be constructed through its hair. In the 1840s and 50s, the Philadelphia lawyer and naturalist procured as many specimens as he could, from figures famous and ordinary, living and dead, local and abroad. Anyone with hair was desirable for what he anticipated to be a major national collection.

Acquisitions came from patients in the Western Virginia Lunatic Asylum and Napoleon Bonaparte, from a 100-year-old man and a fetus, and from the head of a lady which had laid 32 years in the grave. Browne connected with missionaries, explorers, and traders who brought back hair from around the world, and on his behalf the Secretary of the Interior Alexander H. H. Stuart sent requests to agents in the Bureau of Indian Affairs. He collected from the celebrities of the day, like museum founder Charles Willson Peale and author James Fenimore Cooper, and its human oddities, such as conjoined twins Chang and Eng Bunker, and Julia Pastrana, exhibited for her hairy face and body.  A few strands of George Washingtons tresses were acquired from the son of the late presidents barber, joining other examples from 13 of the first presidents. Browne even obtained samples from a convicted murderer before and after his hanging.

November Snow In Texas? Experts Warn Decreased Solar Activity Will Shatter All Global Climate Models "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse

Our sun has been behaving very strangely, and this unusual behavior is really starting to affect our weather patterns.  There have been virtually no sunspots in 2018 as solar activity has dropped to alarmingly low levels. As a result, our atmosphere has been cooling and shrinking, and experts are warning that we are heading for a bitterly, bitterly cold winter. And even though the official start of winter is well over a month away, winter weather is already sweeping the nation. As you will see below, a giant winter storm is about to slam into the east coast, but what is happening in Texas is even more unnerving. On Wednesday morning, the temperature in San Antonio plummeted to just 23 degrees, and that absolutely shattered the old record

This shatters the old record low of 28 degrees set back in 1916, the National Weather Service tweeted of Wednesdays weather. Tuesday night just before midnight, the city hit 28 degrees, breaking the previous record of 29 set in 1907, records show.

Typically, November temperatures are significantly warmer. The average high for the month is about 71 degrees and the normal low is 51 degrees. San Antonios average low this year has been comparable to other years, but its average high, a cool 66.6 degrees, has been lower than normal.

Over in Houston, things were even stranger. When Houston residents woke up on Wednesday morning, they were stunned to see snow on the ground

An incredible sight danced over the cities glistening skyscrapers of Houston this morning and likely caused many to rub their eyes and shake their heads. No, it wasnt your lying eyes but rather the earliest snowfall ever observed in the city of Houston and surrounding areas.

Its official, according to the National Weat...

3 Postnatal Meal Kits You Can Make "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I often cook double for our family and drop it around to my neighbours house. We live on an awesome street! But recently Ive had some friends whove been sick or stressed or needed babies and its been too far away for me to drop over a meal. 

So I came up with the idea of creating a meal kit that can be put in the post. 

Its the perfect postpartum gift so I thought Id share it with you too.

  NM - Blog Thumbnails V4.jpg  

Another advantage of these meal kits is that they last for months and months, so if a mum is inundated with food in the first few weeks she can save them for later when everyone forgets about the new family.

I also use these for camping trips, or if my husband is travelling and I know Ill need some quick food handy.

You can put these meal kits in jars, or to post them I use cellophane bags cause they are light and biodegradable. All three will fit in a 500g pre-paid satchel with space for a card or other small gift.


Ive also created some beautiful printable labels that you can cut out and attach to your meal kits at the end of this blog post. This way the lucky person you gift the meal kit to will know what to do with them :)

All you need to do is mix all the ingredients together and print out the labels! I recommend you do a double or triple batch so youve got spares for other friends and yourself too.

You wont find a better metaphor for Brexit than this one involving cake "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Since before the referendum, people have been struggling to explain Brexit through a variety of metaphors, such as giving up gym membership, going through a divorce, or even living through wartime none have stood up to scrutiny. However, newspaper columnist, Gary Bainbridge, has found a perfect way to explain the complexities of leaving the EU.

He explained his reasoning.

The people who have been pressing hardest for Brexit are obsessed with cakes. The former Foreign Secretary was convinced in public that we could have our cake and eat it. John Redwood, the perfectly normal former Welsh Secretary, talked about making our own cakes instead of helping other countries with their cakes. And UKIP is full of fruitcakes.

So I have decided to explain the Brexit process through the medium of cakes.

Here, in the form of an exchange between a Leaver and a Remainer with sundry political cameos is Garys Brexit metaphor.

LEAVER: I want an omelette.

REMAINER: Right. Its just we havent got any eggs.

LEAVER: Yes, we have. There they are. [HE POINTS AT A CAKE]

REMAINER: Theyre in the cake.

LEAVER: Yes, get them out of the cake, please.

REMAINER: But we voted in 1975 to put them into a cake.

LEAVER: Yes, but that cake has got icing on it. Nobody said there was going to be icing on it.

REMAINER: Icing is good.

LEAVER: And there are raisins in it. I dont like raisins. Nobody mentioned raisins. I demand another vote.




LEAVER: Right, wheres my omelette?

REMAINER: I told you, the eggs are in the cake.

LEAVER: Well, get them out.

EU: Its our cake.

JEREMY CORBYN: Yes, get them out now.

REMAINER: I have absolutely no idea how to get them out. Dont you know how to get them out?

LEAVER: Yes! You just get them out and then you make an omelette.

REMAINER: But how?! Didnt you give this any thought?

LEAVER: Saboteur! Youre talking eggs down. We could make omelettes before the eggs went into the cake, so theres no reason why we cant make them now.

THERESA MAY: Its OK, I can do it.


THERESA MAY: There was a vote to remove the eggs from...

Japan Wants to Regulate Crypto Wallets, Breach of User Privacy? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Crypto wallet users in Japan may have to reveal their identities as the countrys top financial watchdog prepares a law for it.

The Financial Services Agency (FSA) on Monday revealed its plan to regulate cryptocurrency wallet providers, ItMedia reported. The decision came during a cryptocurrency study group meeting after concerns over money laundering and terrorist financing were raised. The agency also looked into pressing matters related to the protection of crypto wallet users that remain mainly exposed to cyber attack and infrastructure failures.

FSA didnt finalize the details of how and when the new regulation would appear as it shapes up. However, the agency revealed that it would be in line with the FATF-led international standards for preventing money laundering and terrorism financing laws. In a near-term scenario, cryptocurrency exchanges, wallet service providers and ICO companies will have to register with the FSA to continue their operations in Japan.

Categorizing Wallets

As it went ahead with the proposal to regulate crypto wallets, FSA also mentioned how it may categorize the wallet services according to their predefined standards. The current laws draw a stark line between businesses that engage in purchasing and selling of assets, and those that manage and transfer assets for customers.

As of now, the wallet companies in concern are mostly crypto exchanges that hold customers assets for them to ensure smooth liquidity as they trade. On the other hand, a wallet software or a hardware wallet does not necessarily hold the users funds. Instead, these services allow users to have a full ownership of their crypto assets by enabling them to create private keys. But yet they manage payment transfers, which could bring them within the purview of the FSA.

Bitcoin wallet service, for instance, might not be facilitating trades but to Japan regulator, they are still assisting in the management and transfer of the digital currency.

The FSA meeting, as reported by ItMedia, this time focused only on service providers mainly exchanges and crypto custodian services. It kept software wallet developers and hardware wallet manufacturers out of the discussion agenda at least for now.

Doctor Who faces no confidence vote "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

News that for the first time in 13 years Doctor Who has been dropped from the Christmas Day TV schedule has prompted calls for a leadership change.

Angus Brown, lifetime fan and deputy treasurer of the Doctor Who Fan Club (Worthing Branch) read out this statement This is the day of reckoning. I and the rest of the fan club are calling for a vote of no confidence in Jodie Whittakers leadership. This is the final humiliation on an international stage, despite biased media attempts to spin it as a bright new beginning.

She took the reins after a frankly untransparent selection process, continued Brown.  Initially this was full of promise but its ended up with a buggers muddle of an approach which satisfies neither the faction who were happy with the status quo nor those who wanted to depart in a bold new direction.

Rather than show leadership she has tried to please every minority out there at once, Brown continued. She has split the country and her support is dwindling week by week. Time and again she has bowed to alien interests. Enough is enough, we need regeneration. Send the letters in to the BBC!

Michael Gove is understood to have expressed interest in the role.

A Japanese Illustrated History of America (1861): Features George Washington Punching Tigers, John Adams Slaying Snakes & Other Fantastic Scenes "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

"George Washington (with bow and arrow) pictured alongside the Goddess of America"

Though I'm American myself, I always learn the most about America when I look outside it. When I want to hear my homeland described or see it reflected, I seek out the perspective of anyone other than my fellow Americans. Given that I live in Korea, such perspectives aren't hard to come by, and every day here I learn something new real or imagined about the United States. But Japan, the next country over to the east, has a longer and arguably richer tradition of America-describing. And judging by Osanaetoki Bankokubanashi (), an 1861 book by writer Kanagaki Robun and artist Utagawa Yoshitora, it certainly has a more fantastical one. "Here is George Washington (with bow and arrow) pictured alongside the Goddess of America," writes historian of Japan Nick Kapur in a Twitter thread featuring selections from the book.

Collagen: What It Is and Healthy Ways To Use It "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Let's take a look at collagen - what it is, how to take it, and what it can do for you.
Ready Nutrition guys and gals, we just did a piece on Glycine (I hope you read it), and it ties into this piece in many ways. Collagen. You have heard the term, and you may be vaguely aware of what it is. Do you also know that collagen, when taken as a supplement has a great many benefits both for health and for training (I prefer to believe the latter and former are synonymous and intertwined)? Well, lets take a look at it and what it can do for you.

Collagen is basically a structural protein, and it is found in the connective tissue of animals. It is used in many different structures throughout a body (and in man): tendons, ligaments, bone, blood vessels, and supporting tissues for skin and organs. It also accounts for 5 to 6% of the weight of muscle tissue. From a perspective of supplementation, were going to concern ourselves with Type I (covers organs, bone, skin), and Type III (that is present with Type I, and made of reticulate fibers, very important for support of other tissues).

Collagen is harvested from bovines (taken from cattle), and it is full of protein and just about every amino acid you can think ofincluding some important ones, such as Glycine and Serine. These latter are crucial for protein building in the human body. Collagen supplements also have the BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) that are essential for when you work outthese three (as mentioned in other articles) can be converted by the body directly into Glycogen and then into Glucose during a workout.

This latter function/utilization of the BCAAs saves your own bodys Glycogen stores from being utilized if you pre-load them prior to working out. This is very fascinating for me personally, as I dont like the feeling of fullness/bloat attached to taking a shake prior to a workout, and I use the BCAAs in another form. I am hoping that the collagen will be able to be used (by me) prior to workout, as it is tasteless and can be taken with water readily.



Older Adults Willing to Reduce Number of Medications, Study Finds "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From Lown Institute: Taking many medications at once can put patients, especially older adults, at risk of a negative reaction to one or more drugs. More than 450,000 older Americans went to the Emergency Room in 2015 because of an adverse drug event.

Given the risks of taking too many medications, initiatives around the world have been started to encourage doctors to deprescribe, to take patients off medications that are unnecessary or harmful. However, taking patients off medications is easier said than done there are not many guidelines for tapering medications, doctors may be reluctant to deprescribe a medication another doctor prescribed, and deprescribing is a significant time commitment that doctors often dont have in their busy schedules.

Primary care doctors report that one of the biggest barriers to deprescribing is that patients dont want to stop taking medications. Patients may perceive that the medication is making them healthier, even if its not; they may think the doctor is giving up on them by deprescribing; they may not realize that they can go back on the medication if necessary; or they may be under pressure from their family to keep taking the medication.

However, a new study in JAMA Internal Medicine shows that patients are not as resistant to deprescribing as doctors might think.

On Thursday USDC was granted a new realm of legitimacy when Binance, the worlds top crypto exchange by trade volume, announced that it would be listing new pairs.

According to the announcement Binance will be offering two new USDC pairs for Bitcoin and its own Binance Coin (BNB) as of November 17. To quash the auditing concerns that plagued Tether, the exchange added;

Additionally, for increased transparency, USDC has engaged a top-ranking auditing firm to release monthly balance attestations of the corresponding USDC and USD balances held/issued.

USD Coin is only a few months old but it is growing in power as an alternative to USDT. It still has a way to go though, with daily volume, according to Coinmarketcap, at $16 million, compared to $4.7 billion in Tether trade. However, with USDC available on Coinbase and now Binance, its usage is expected to grow rapidly especially when more trading pairs are introduced.

According to the company blog Circle and Coinbase co-founded the CENTRE Consortium with the goal of establishing a standard for fiat on the internet and providing a governance framework and network for the global, mainstream adoption of fiat stablecoins.

If complete transparency and audits are forthcoming it may not be long before USDC surpasses USDT however the centralization issue raises its head again when one company is holding all of the cards. This is especially true if Tether continues to show volatility and inability to maintain its dollar peg.

Ripple Secures More Banking Partners, XRP Holds Second Spot Over Ethereum "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

San Francisco based blockchain company Ripple has secured another major banking partner in Asia this week. ASEANs fifth largest bank, CIMB Group, as announced that it will join RippleNet in order to utilize the firms cross border transfer products. Its XRP token meanwhile has held on to second spot over Ethereum.

RippleNet Expands it Reach

The move will allow the bank to grow its global payments network by joining those already in the Ripple network. According to the announcement CIMB is one of the first banks in Asia to leverage blockchain technology. In a region where micro-payments and remittances drive the bulk of banking transactions the need for more efficiency and cost reduction has never been greater.

According to the World Bank, remittances in the region will grow to $120 billion this year. The Boston Consulting Group added that the global cross border payment volume is an estimated $27 trillion with a further $20 trillion expected to be added in the coming decade. The ASEAN region is responsible for almost 40% of this entire volume.

CIMB already has its own remittance platform called SpeedSend so the partnership with Ripple is designed to enhance that and further improve the speed and costs of cross border payments. CIMB Group chief executive, Tengku Dato Sri Zafrul Aziz said;

We are delighted to be part of RippleNet and look forward to a fruitful partnership with Ripple by leveraging each others strengths and capabilities. This innovative blockchain solution will revolutionize international cross-border remittances, and is a testament to CIMBs ongoing efforts to enhance its digital banking proposition

Ripple boss, Brad Garlinghouse, commented CIMBs network already spans 15 countries, nearly 800 branches and offers Speedsend one of the best solutions in the ASEAN region. Now, by integrating Ripples blockchain technology, they will enable their customers to send vital funds to family, friends and loved ones more efficiently.

Qanon Dead at Clinton Pizza Party #TheStormHasSettled "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

INTERNET Hillary Clintons famous bodyguard and Q-Clearance Intelligence Agent Q Anon, known for leaking secret information, or crumbs, to an audience of millions of devotees, died Friday following a fatal priapism in Washington DC.

Q, as his fans know him, suddenly lost consciousness when his penis ruptured from a prolonged erection while standing guard at one of Hillarys famous Pizza Parties for Democrat elites.

Bill Clinton, who first found Q passed out on the floor in a puddle of blood, said, I saw him a layin there bleeding out of his crotch, so I ripped his pants off. It looked like Elmer Fudds Shotgun, after Bugs Bunny stuck his finger in it. His member banana peeled and the blood was just rolling out. Thats when I called the paramedics in.

Hillary expressed her condolences, but registered shock upon learning one of her bodyguards was indeed the man behind the mysterious Q Anon phenomenon, telling reporters, Its kind of sad how Q never ate any pizza. All he did was hang around the edge of the party, messing around on his phone, sniffing the pizza crumbs.

Bill told reporters about his attempts to resuscitate Q, They said he mightve split his cock on his own, ahead of time, as some kind of masochist type sex play, or possibly he was injecting silicone to keep it artificially erect. They did their best but it was just too swollen up. Burst open and mushed like an overripe tomato. Nothin they could do to seal it up.

The bitter funk of QAnons failure to challenge mainstream media or affect positive change of any kind, before his death, is palpable.

Kp Message 11-15-18 (yes, another one) The Energetic Flow is pretty HUGE right now "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Theres definitely a very strong flow of Higher Cosmic Energy in the planet right now, as well as in each BEing that is here. All of the arenas below I sense are displaying this very strong flow of Higher Cosmic Energy:

  • Personal illumination (individual)
  • Group illumination (political, societal, etc.)
  • Disclosure (of higher tech, UFOs, etc.)
  • Healing (inner, outer, physical body)
  • Relationships (personal and groups)
  • Who the h knows what else

Many have been involved in opening up energy portals for the transformations, transmutations that are currently ongoing. Certainly the Minnesota Headwaters mission played a part in this, but many have been doing their thing to help bring this to pass. Most important, I feel, is to continue to ask for, and receive, that Higher Inner Guidance, which communicates where we are to go and be and what to do at any given time moment.

Its a big deal, right now, to be awake and alert and alive. So well see how this continues playing out, as we ascend together.

Bitcoin Price Watch: BTC/USD Could Rebound Towards $5,900 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin price extended declines below $5,330 and traded towards $5,200 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $5,550 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price is likely positioning for an upward move above the $5,600 and $5,700 levels.

Bitcoin price extended losses towards $5,200 against the US Dollar. BTC/USD is currently rebounding and it could correct higher towards $5,900.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of more declines below $5,400 in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair extended losses below the $5,330 swing low and traded towards the $5,200 low. A new 2018 low was formed at $5,206 and later the price started a fresh recovery. The price moved above the $5,300 and $5,400 resistance. Besides, there was a break above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $5,646 high to $5,206 low.

Buyers also pushed the price above the $5,550 level, but they struggled near $5,600. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $5,550 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The pair seems to be preparing for a larger recovery above the $5,600 level. If there is a close above $5,600, the price could continue to move higher towards the $5,750 level. It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last decline from the $5,646 high to $5,206 low. Finally, the main resistance could be $5,918, which is the 1.618 Fib extension level.

Bitcoin Price Analysis BTC Chart

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is likely forming an inverse head and shoulders pattern with resistance at $5,600. Therefore, a proper break above the $5,600 level will most likely push the price towards $5,750 or $5,900.

That the Japanese are open to cryptocurrencies and similar blockchain technologies but concurrently stringent protecting investors is true. So tight are applicable laws that investors who lose their digital assets are guaranteed of a recourse. We have seen that happen with the ongoing Mt Gox Civil Rehabilitation Case. Because it is mandatory for exchanges to register with the countrys Financial Services Agency (FSA), investors are safe.

Now, under the fund settlement law of which crypto exchanges must follow since they are platforms for buying and selling digital assets, wallet service providers are exempt. It is understandable, simply because most are platforms where users register for free. From there, they can safely manage their digital assets.

In the midst of a severe market slump that has seen Bitcoin slide more than 80 percent from 2017 peaks, Zhao Changpeng is pretty optimistic about crypto. We must note that the fall of Bitcoin has dragged altcoins to new levels with some dropping by as much as 95 percent from their 2017 highs.

Nonetheless, Binance is having a stellar year. Pulling in around $3 billion in revenue in the first half of the year the exchange is officially the largest in the world by trading volumes. But contrary to expectations, this super performance coincides with a market wide slump that has seen total market cap slide from $800 billion to around $180 billion. However, fading these are year to year high trading volumes indicative of widespread adoption and/or interest in the space.

Natural Gas Industry Continues to Pollute in Many Different Way "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

EQT Production fined for polluting Monongahela River with mine water

From an Article by Joe Napsha, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, November 13, 2018

A natural gas drilling company was fined $294,000 by the state for polluting the Monongahela River last year with about 4 million gallons of mine water when it punctured an abandoned mine as it was boring underneath Route 136 in Forward Township to install a pipe to carry fresh water for a drilling site.

The Department of Environmental Protection in Pittsburgh said Tuesday EQT Production Co. in Cecil paid the fine as part of a consent order and agreement covering violations of the Clean Streams Law in Allegheny County.

According to the DEP, EQT inadvertently pierced the abandoned Gallatin mine on January 17, 2017 as it was boring a hole underneath Route 136 to install a pipeline from the Monongahela River to its Rostosky drilling site in Forward Township, Allegheny County. It took EQT until Jan. 31 to stop the discharge through the waterline borehole to unnamed tributaries of the Monongahela River and associated wetlands.

EQT was aware when it applied for permits in July 2016 there were several abandoned coal mines in the area, the DEP said. EQT relied on regional mapping that generally described mine pools as not flooded or unknown but did not undertake any further investigation. There were seeps of orange water near the area of the waterline borehole.

Since the incident, EQT has constructed a collection and drainage system similar to what was in place when the water was discharged. EQT also agreed to establish a $100,000 fund with the Clean Streams Foundation to provide for the maintenance, operation, and replacement of the system.

In September, Commonweath Court upheld a $1.1 million fine levied against EQT Productions parent company, EQT Corp. of Pittsburgh, for violating state environmental laws by failing to prevent significant contamination from a fracking water holding pond in Tioga County six years ago.

The state Environmental Hearing Board found that water from the drilling site in Tioga County continued to pollute area groundwater, even after the company emptied t...

Pachelbels Chicken: Your Favorite Classical Pieces Played Masterfully on a Rubber Chicken "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Music lovers bracing against the annual onslaught of the Singing Dogs "Jingle Bells" may find their savage beasts soothed somewhat by Eddy Chens performance of Pachelbels Canon, above.

Never mind that the instrument on which he plays four different tracks is a rubber chicken or more accurately, as per Amazon, a Screaming Yellow Rubber Chicken Non Toxic Bite-resistant Squeaky Toy.

It retains its relaxing musicality. Chen, one half of Australian duo TwoSetViolin, plays that bird like the disciplined, classically-trained pro he is.

Classical chicken covers became a surprise hit for Chen and his partner, Brett Yang, veterans of the Sydney and Queensland Symphony Orchestras, whose virtually sold out world tour was the first of its kind to be entirely financed by Kickstarter donations.

The duo describes its mission as upholding the integrity of classical music while making it relevant to the modern generation through fun, humour and simplicity, noting, in a joint interview with

There are people out there who are ready to love classical music, and we have to actively find them. It is the way classical music has been presented so far that makes it so austere.

Everyone has the potential to like it, but sometimes musicians alienate and scare potential listeners with our pride.

No Recovery Bounce As Crypto Markets Remain Crushed "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

FOMO Moments

Crypto markets are still on the floor; Stellar, BAT and Ox recovering, BCH and BNB still falling.

There has been no recovery or rally from Wednesdays crypto rout which resulted in almost 30 billion dollars being wiped out. Markets remain depressed as we end the week and are still languishing at their lowest levels this year.

Bitcoin appears to have found its new trading level for the time being which is around $5,600. BTC could not muster any momentum over the past 24 hours and is currently trading at $5,620 after dropping to another yearly low of $5,360 last night. Ethereum is also depressed pulling back a miserly one percent to take it just below $180. This has prevented ETH retaking second spot in the market cap charts.

Altcoins are slowly starting to recover but only one or two are making any progress in the top ten at the moment. Stellar is leading the way with a 7.5% gain on the day to $0.245, XRP is also recovering a little with over 4% added on the day. The rest are immobile with Bitcoin Cash still dropping despite its successful hard fork and hash power victory.

Tron, Iota and Bitcoin Gold are making the best progress in the top twenty but gains are small at around 3%. The rest are moving a percent or two aside from Binance Coin which has lost more ground falling back another 2% today.

The altcoin getting the fomo treatment at the time of writing is WAX which has pumped 17% since the same time yesterday. Also recovering well today are the two recent Coinbase listings, BAT and 0x both regaining 10 and 13 percent respectively. Predictably dumping today is yesterdays pump token, Nasdacoin dropping 13%.

Total cryptocurrency market capitalization is still at $185 billion and showing no real signs of recovery yet. A new yearly low was hit yesterday when markets slumped to $175 billion.

Anxious Punk Relieved Show Too Loud to Hear Himself Think "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

ST. PAUL, Minn. Local punk and notorious overthinker Ben Handley was relieved last night to attend a show so loud, he couldnt even hear himself think any of his 10,000 pestering thoughts, a delighted source confirmed.

Its a nice reprieve from my normal thought process, said Handley, visibly relaxed and at peace with himself for the first time in weeks. Normally at that point, Id be thinking about how I was five minutes late to work last Thursday, and that theyre probably gonna fire me for that. But thanks to a borderline-illegal soundsystem, all I could hear is how loud all these bands were.

It was totally worth $6, he added.

The bands high volume allegedly combined with general background noise to even quiet Handleys negative thoughts between bands.

Even when the bands stop playing, its still loud as fuck in there. Somebody kicked in a speaker, so there was constant feedback, and this one drunk guy in the corner was yelling for no reason, pretty much nonstop, Handley said. I had to abandon obsessing over some stupid thing I said to a cashier yesterday, and I didnt even think about disappointing my parents once.

Medical experts were baffled by Handleys unconventional anxiety-quelling methods.

Anxiety is a very serious issue, and should be taken seriously, said audiologist Gwen Thongtip. Also, hell be deaf by the time hes 30 if he keeps this up. He should really look into insurance or at least stand near the back, with all the older people.

Despite Thongtips warning, backed by damning evidence that clanging guitars, pounding drums, and screeching, off-key vocals creating a cacophony exceeding 130 decibels may be enough to permanently damage ones hearing, Handley found no cause for alarm.

Yeah, earplugs would be good but, honestly, I dont really care if I get tinnitus. Ill take a high-pitched ringing over my own thoughts any day, he said. Who knows? Maybe Ill get lucky and the ringing in my ears will stay until tomorrow to keep me from worrying about losing my hearing. God, I bet I would get so much stuff done if it did.

Ripple Price Analysis: XRP/USD Facing Uphill Task Near 100 SMA "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price recovered nicely and moved above the $0.4500 and $0.4600 resistances against the US dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted key bearish trend line with resistance at $0.4660 was breached on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair will most likely face a strong selling interest near the $0.4860 and $0.4900 resistances.

Ripple price managed to correct higher against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. However, XRP/USD is likely to struggle near $0.4900 and the 100 hourly SMA.

Ripple Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a nasty decline in ripple price below the $0.5000 support against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair broke the $0.4600, $0.4500 and even $0.4200 support. It traded towards the $0.4000 level and formed a low at $0.4020. Later, the price started a decent upside recovery and moved above $0.4500. Buyers managed to push the price above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.5208 high to $0.4020 low.

More importantly, yesterdays highlighted key bearish trend line with resistance at $0.4660 was breached on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is currently trading near the $0.4800 resistance. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $0.5208 high to $0.4020 low is acting as a resistance. Above $0.4800, the main resistance is near the $0.4860 and $0.4900 levels. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also positioned near the $0.4920 level to act as a strong resistance. Therefore, it wont be easy for buyers to clear the $0.4860, $0.4900 and $0.4920 levels.

Ripple Price Analysis XRP Chart

Looking at the chart, ripple price may perhaps consolidate in the short term above $0.4700. Finally, there could be an attempt to clear the $0.4900 resistance. On the downside, the key support is at $0.4500 followed by $0.42...

The PM also announced an immediate cabinet reshuffle, with ten ministerial jobs up for grabs, inviting colleagues to the Commons, come and have a go if you think youre hard Brexit enough!

17 of the weirdest myths about EU laws "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For years, weve seen a constant stream of stories about the Draconian excesses of the EU, with talks of bans on bent cucumbers or cows being forced to wear nappies. To put the record straight, if not the cucumbers, the European Commission curates a blog debunking these rumours. Here are 17 of the very strangest lies about EU rules, mostly from the UK press.

Myth: Electronic sex toys must be returned for recycling

Fact: The EU requires retailers to allow final owners of electrical items to return them at no cost.

Myth: Farmers must put a toy in every pigsty

Fact: Farmers required to provide pigs with a manipulable material, such as straw, because they have access to stuff like that in the wild and it keeps them happy. So, if they play with the straw, its kind of true that its a toy.

Myth: EU planned to ban prawn cocktail crisps

Fact: There was never any such plan. There were investigations into additives, but no crisp flavour was ever threatened.

Myth: Paddling pools deeper than 12 inches must have a full-time lifeguard

Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH/USD Remains Sell On Rallies Near $186 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price found support near the $165 level and later recovered slightly against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break above a short term bearish trend line with resistance at $173 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could trade above $180, but it could face a strong resistance near the $186 level.

Ethereum price is currently consolidating against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD is likely to face a strong resistance near the $186 and $190 levels.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a major downside move below the $170 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded as low as $165 and later started a short term recovery. It moved above the $170 and $175 levels and later started consolidating in a tight range. The price also moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $208 swing high to $165 low.

More importantly, there was a break above a short term bearish trend line with resistance at $173 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is currently struggling to clear the $180 resistance area. Above $180, the next resistance is near the $186 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $208 swing high to $165 low. Therefore, if the price continues to move higher, it is likely to face a strong selling interest near $180 or $186. A close above $186 may open the doors for a push towards $200.

Ethereum Price Analysis ETH Chart

Looking at the chart, ETH price is showing positive signs above the 170 level, but it wont be easy for buyers. On the downside, an initial support is at $172 followed by $170. If there is a break below the recent low of $165, the price could drop to $160.

Not Pushing During Childbirth Decreases Your Risk of Vaginal Tearing By 700% "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When it comes to childbirth, lying on your back and pushing isnt ideal for everyone. Most women experience vaginal tearing on some level and according to this research, that is something that can be avoided much more easily than youd think.

While we are told that pushing is the best way to get the baby out, sometimes we shouldnt have to push at all. I recently came across information about a program designed by the staff from Medway Foundation Trust that has literally been able to cut the incidents of tearing from seven percent to just one percent in their patients. This program basically just allowing the mothers to slow down during their deliveries and birth in positions that they feel are comfortable.

In the past, it was not common for women to give birth lying on their backs and there is a reason for this. This method could really help to reduce the levels of perineal tearing that we are seeing in modern times. Basically instead of pulling the babies out as soon as they begin emerging this method allows them to come out at their own pace and according to those who followed this program it was a big-time success.

A study was published on this in the European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. It is referred to as the STOMP experiment and seemed to of done exactly what it set out to do. By implementing a series of measures to the birthing process in itself a significant decrease in tears was noted.

Their results were as follows:

There were a total of 3902 vaginal births during the 12 month period following project launch. Following full STOMP implementation, there was a significant decrease in the incidence of third/ fourth-degree tears (4.7% vs 2.2%, p < 0.0001). The reduction was most pronounced in the first 5 months (4.7% vs 1.51%, p < 0.0001).

So it seems, opting not to push unless it was needed really made a difference. There is no right or wrong way to give birth. Doing what feels most comfortable to you is going to be beneficial. Merging conventional birthings with those that a midwife would offer could really make a real difference in a lot of ways.

Would you opt to maybe give birth squatting or perhaps not push? I for one think as long as there are no complications letting them come at their own pace sounds like a great idea.

Colloidal Silver?! What it is, how to make it. 

A potential lifesaver!

My experience with using colloidal silver

I have had only positive results in my use of colloidal silver.

I had come to a point where I was constantly battling infections due to post cancer and post radiation treatment side effects.

I initially started treating the infection(s) as per my doctors prescription by means of antibiotics.

I soon came to realize after a couple of infections (about a month apart) that I would need to change my way of dealing

with the infections as the heavy antibiotic courses I was given were not working and I was getting concerned that I would

soon be immune to antibiotics.

Tiny Rescue Kitten Looks More Like A Plush Toy Than A Real Cat "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Mr. Meeseeks was found last fall, along with his mom and five siblings, abandoned in a box left outside in the rain. The entire family was taken in by Broward County Animal Care in Florida, and the whole shelter was immediately struck by what an unusual-looking litter of kittens Meeseeks and his siblings were.

Credit: Amanda Kruczynski

Its often difficult to find foster homes for a mom cat and her kittens, and no one was sure what would happen to them. Not long after they came in, though, Amanda Kruczynski, one of the staffers at the shelter and an avid foster mom, heard about them and went to see them in their holding kennel. As soon as she saw all the kittens huddled up against their mom, she knew she couldnt leave their fate up to chance. 

I put them all into a carrier and took them home on my lunch break, Kruczynski told The Dodo. I knew they would need time to heal from what they had gone through and I wanted to be able to lend a hand in that. We never did find out how they came to be in that box that night or why they were abandoned.

From the very beginning, Meeseeks was different from his siblings. When he first arrived in his foster home, he was too small to move around much and mostly stayed curled up in a little ball. He was so tiny and fuzzy, he barely even looked real, and a lot of people had a hard time believing that he actually was.

Svali Speaks! an Ex-Illuminati Mind Control Programmer: Chapter 2: Jobs in the Illuminati (or Why They Spend All That Time Training People) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

To understand generational programming, it helps to understand WHY the cult goes to the amount of trouble that it does to place programming into people. Training represents time and effort, and no one- especially a cult member- will spend that amount of energy unless there will be a return on the investment. This will be a simple overview of some of the more common jobs in the cult. It is not meant to be exhaustive, or in any way considered to be complete.
The cult has a very organized hierarchy of jobs. Like any large organization, in order to run smoothly, it needs people who are well trained in their jobs- so well trained, that they can do their tasks without even thinking about them. To maintain secrecy, this group must also have people completely dedicated to not revealing their roles in the cult- even under threat of death or punishment. The cult wants members who are completely loyal to the group and its tenets, who never question the orders they are given. These qualities in group members ensure the continuance of the cult, and that its secrets are never revealed to the outside world.
Here is a sampling of some jobs in the cult (not listed in order of priority)
Informers These people are trained to observe details and conversations with photographic recall. They are trained to report to their local cult leader or hierarchy, or trainer, and will download large amounts of information under hypnotic trance.

Navajo Nation Leadership Meets with White House Officials to Advocate for Contination of Operations of Navajo Generating Station "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Navajo Times | Krista Allen
The Navajo Generating Station provides jobs for about 1,000.

Published November 16, 2018

WASHINGTON Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and Speaker LoRenzo Bates of the 23rd Navajo Nation Council met with top White House officials on Wednesday to advocate and reaffirm their support for the continued operations of the Navajo Generating Station (NGS) and Kayenta Mine.

Recently, President Begaye and Speaker Bates directed Navajo Transitional Energy Company (NTEC) to explore options for the potential purchase of NGS and the continued operation of Kayenta Mine beyond 2019. NTEC is a for-profit entity wholly owned by the Navajo Nation. It owns the Navajo Mine and holds a seven-percent ownership interest in the Four Corners Power Plant in northwest New Mexico.

We are confident that NTEC has the knowledge, expertise and resources to put forth a strategy to acquire NGS and continue operations at Kayenta Mine, President Begaye said. Our top priority has always been to secure as many jobs as possible for our Navajo people and their families, and to provide stable revenue for our Nation for years to come.

NTEC CEO Clark Moseley joined the Nations leaders as they met with officials from the White House Intergovernmental Affairs Office, the White House Council on Environmental Quality, the White House National Economic Council, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of the Interior, and Congressional leadership Wednesday and Thursday in the Nations capital.

NTEC is currently working to evaluate all possible avenues to ensure the continued operations of Navajo Generating Station and Kayenta Mine past 2019, Moseley said. This is a very complex matter with numerous moving pieces and we are examining all potential strategies to meet the goals of the Navajo Nation. Im very confident that we have a diligent path forward.

Moseley added that the Navajo-owned enterprise could potentially provide advantages that outside companies cannot, including tax incentives.

Speaker Bates said the ongoing discussions involving NTEC require the current NGS owners to negotiate in good faith and to work cooperativel...

AIANTA to Develop Tribal Travel Guide Interpreting the Anza Trail "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published November 16, 2018

The American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association (AIANTA) has signed an agreement with the National Park Service to develop an educational guide chronicling the stories of the tribes located along the Anza Trail.
ALBUQUERQUE  In October 1775as American colonists were entering their sixth month of armed conflict against the Kingdom of Great Britainmore than 240 settlers from Mexico, led by Lt. Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza, began an arduous overland trek north to San Francisco.
The 1,200 mile journey from New Spain (Mexico) to Alta (Upper) California, which in the United States stretches from Nogales, Arizona to San Francisco, California, lasted more than eight months, and traversed what today are some of Californias most popular roadways.
The route, which can largely be navigated by automobile, has Historic Landmark signs dotted along the way highlighting key moments along the lengthy trek. While many of these markers chronicle European expansion into Western North America, the expedition history also very much belongs to the tribes and Native people the colonists met and interacted with along the way.
Not just the story of Juan Bautista de Anza, the Anza Trail is also the story of Salvador Palma, a chieftain of Arizonas Quechan (Yuma) Tribe, who helped guide the expedition, including leading the settlers to safety during a particularly difficult crossing of a raging Colorado River.

PMID: 21358592 Abstract Title:  Antioxidant therapy as a potential approach to severe influenza-associated complications. Abstract:  With the appearance of the novel influenza A (H1N1) virus 2009 strain we have experienced a new influenza pandemic and many patients have died from severe complications associated with this pandemic despite receiving intensive care. This suggests that a definitive medical treatment for severe influenza-associated complications has not yet been established. Many studies have shown that superoxide anion produced by macrophages infiltrated into the virus-infected organs is implicated in the development of severe influenza-associated complications. Selected antioxidants, such as pyrrolidine dithiocabamate, N-acetyl-L-cysteine, glutathione, nordihydroguaiaretic acid, thujaplicin, resveratrol, (+)-vitisin A, ambroxol, ascorbic acid, 5,7,4-trihydroxy-8-methoxyflavone, catechins, quercetin 3-rhamnoside, iso- quercetin and oligonol, inhibit the proliferation of influenza virus and scavenge superoxide anion. The combination of antioxidants with antiviral drugs synergistically reduces the lethal effects of influenza virus infections. These results suggest that an agent with antiviral and antioxidant activities could be a drug of choice for the treatment of patients with severe influenza-associated complications. This review article updates knowledge of antioxidant therapy as a potential approach to severe influenza-associated complications.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Accelerating Declines Below $400 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price extended losses and traded below the $400 level against the US Dollar.
  • There are two key bearish trend lines in place with resistance at $420 and $450 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair remains at a risk of more losses below the $360 level in the near term.

Bitcoin cash price traded below the key $400 support against the US Dollar. BCH/USD could correct higher, but sellers are likely to appear near $420 or $450.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

Yesterday, we discussed that bitcoin cash price could extend losses below $400 against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair corrected a few points recently, but it failed to break the $450 resistance. Later, there was a sharp downside move and the price declined below the $420 and $400 supports. A new low was formed at $360 and the price is now trading well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

At the moment, the price is consolidating losses around the $380 level. It seems like the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $451 high to $360 low is acting as a resistance. Moreover, there are two key bearish trend lines in place with resistance at $420 and $450 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair. The first bearish trend line coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide from the $451 high to $360 low. Therefore, the $400-405 zone could prevent gains in the near term.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis BCH Chart

Looking at the chart, BCH price could correct a few points above $390. However, buyers are likely to struggle near $400, $405, $420 and finally $450. On the downside, the next target for sellers could be $350.

PMID: 17624247 Abstract Title:  N-acetylcysteine synergizes with oseltamivir in protecting mice from lethal influenza infection. Abstract:  Many studies have shown that oxidative stress is important in the pathogenesis of pulmonary damage during influenza virus infections. Antioxidant molecules are therefore potentially useful against viral infection. Our previous studies show that N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has a protective effect in a model of lethal influenza infection in mice. NAC administration significantly decreased the mortality in infected mice. Further studies have demonstrated that NAC enhanced survival in combination with the antiviral agent ribavirin. In the present study, we report the effect of combined treatment with NAC and Oseltamivir, clinically used in the treatment and prevention of influenza virus infection, in a murine model of lethal influenza infection. NAC was given as a single daily dose of 1000 mg/kg starting from 4 h before infection and until day 4 after infection; Oseltamivir was given twice daily at dose of 1 mg/kg/die for 5 days, starting from 4 h before infection. End-point evaluation was 21-days survival. NAC alone was slightly effective (20%), since a suboptimal treatment was used. Survival increased to 60% with Oseltamivir and to 100% with Oseltamivir and NAC used in combination. Since NAC alone does not show any antiviral action, the present findings suggest that antioxidant therapy increase survival by an improvement in host defense mechanisms, and/or by a direct antioxidant effect against oxidative stress associated with viral infection. Our studies demonstrate the effectiveness of combining agents acting through different mechanisms, such as antiviral drugs oseltamivir and the antioxidant NAC, indicating a possible advantage of combining the two treatments.

Turtle Rescuers Rush To Evacuate Their Entire Hospital As Wildfire Gets Closer "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

As smoke from one of the deadliest wildfires in California's history started to blot out the sky, two people realized that they would have to try to do the impossible.

Credit: ATR

Susan Tellem and Marshall Thompson, founders of American Tortoise Rescue (ATR), have been rescuing turtles and tortoises for nearly 30 years. Since 1997, they have lived in Malibu, California, where they operate a tortoise hospital and care for ailing animals and over 100 rescued turtle and tortoise residents 

When the Woolsey Fire barreled down on Malibu last week, Tellem and Thompson realized they would have to evacuate.

"With last minute evacuation orders, we loaded both cars with animals, including all of the undersized and ill, as well as our seven special needs box turtles from the turtle hospital," ATR wrote this week. "We left our possessions behind. Bunkle, our mascot [the first tortoise ATR saved 28 years ago], also rode out with us. The rest sheltered in place in fireproof housing as planned."

PMID: 24573805 Abstract Title:  Proteomics study of N-acetylcysteine response in H1N1-infected cells by using mass spectrometry. Abstract:  RATIONALE: The pathology of A/Puerto Rico/8/1934 (H1N1) infection associated with the interaction of virus and its host cells is not clear. N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant as well as a premier antitoxin and immune support substance. A high dose of NAC was recently reported for a therapy of H1N1 (2009) influenza pneumonia.METHODS: NAC was used as a small-molecule organic probe to investigate the protein expression of human lung carcinoma cell line (A549) infected by influenza virus A/Puerto Rico/8/1934 (H1N1). Differential proteins were identified from MALDI-TOF MS and Q-TOF MS/MS analyses.RESULTS: The obtained results showed that NAC kept cells away from apoptosis. Virus-infected cells were arrested in G0/G1 phase. The lowest cell population of G0/G1 phase was detected when the cells were treated by 10mM NAC for one day. Application of MS-based proteomics allowed the identification of the differential proteins. Software analysis showed that four proteins had close relationship.CONCLUSIONS: The results indicated that NAC as a small-molecule probe might effect the protein expression of A549 cells infected by the H1N1 virus.

Senate War Hawks Block Sen. Rand Pauls Bid to Block Arms Sales to Bahrain "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Senate War Hawks Block Sen. Rand Pauls Bid to Block Arms Sales to Bahrain

NOVEMBER 15, 2018 BY  

Today the US Senate voted 77-21 to kill a proposal made by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul which would block US arms sales to the GCC monarchy of Bahrain who is also a member of the Saudi coalition in its illegal war on Yemen now approaching its forth year. Democratic war hawk Bob Menendez (D-NJ) led the opposition to Pauls bill on military strategic grounds as  Bahrain is host to the US Navys Fifth Fleet. At the same time, Menendez and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) introduced another bill which they claim will curtail arms to Saudi Arabia, entitled the Saudi Arabia Accountability and Yemen Act of 2018, sponsored by three Democrats and two Republicans.

This comes on the heels of US sanctions against 17 Saudi nationals to try and pressure Riyadh into a credible investigation into the murder of the supposed dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

This legislation is an important way to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for various acts in Yemen as well as the death of Jamal Khashoggi, said Graham.

More and more, this looks like a convenient exit being engineered by Washington from a very unpopular and highly illegal war which its been involved in from day one under Barack Obama. The fact that they now wont let go of the Bahrain arms deal proves that what we are witnessing now is merely Punch n Judy for the international media. reports

In a 21-77 vote on Thursday, the Senate rejected a bill from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) aiming to block a $300 million arms sale to Bahrain. The bill was heavily opposed by the White House.

Bahrain is among the participants in the Saudi-led, US-backed war in Yemen, and failing to secure the arms deal mightve obliged them to quit the conflict. This was seen as a major goal of the bill, to both ...

Abstract:  Data regarding the efficacy of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in the treatment of hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) are scarce and inconsistent. We aimed to determine possible gender differences in the efficacy of DHEA as a treatment for HDSS. Postmenopausal women (n=27), and men (n=21) with HSDD, were randomized to receive either DHEA 100 mg daily or placebo for 6 weeks in a controlled, double blind study. Primary outcome measures were sexual function questionnaires. Hormone serum levels of DHEAS, total and bioavailable testosterone, estradiol, and urine levels of DHEA and androsterone were also measured. Participants on active treatment showed a significant increase in circulating serum levels of DHEAS, while bioavailable testosterone levels increased in women only. In women only, significant interaction effects were observed for sexual arousal (p

Researcher Jailed After Uncovering Deadly Virus Delivered Through Human Vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"



  • The Facts:Dr. Judy A. Mikovits, PhD, was thrown in prison after she refused to discredit her own research that led to the discovery that deadly retroviruses have been transmitted to 25 million Americans through vaccines.
  • Reflect On:What is the role of the Awakening Community in honoring and protecting courageous whistleblowers who risk their lives and careers to stand in their truth?

If you have been following stories in recent years of scientists and researchers who make discoveries that are threatening to the Deep State and the bottom line of Big Pharma, you will have seen the pattern before. Those doctors are often persuaded to recant their studies, offered bribes or other benefits to distance themselves from or even destroy their data, and even threatened with jail time or, if a legal case is too difficult to fabricate against them, they may simply be killed.

Such is the tale of molecular biologist Judy A. Mikovits, PhD, in the disturbing true story first detailed in this Natural News article that included the video below of how she was thrown in prison for research that led to the discovery that deadly retroviruses have been transmitted to twenty-five million Americans through human vaccines.

Isolating The Virus

With a well-established history of working for the National Cancer Institute as a cancer researcher, Dr. Mikovits worked with human retroviruses like HIV. Her work focused on immunotherapy research. In 2009, she was working on autism and related neurological diseases. She found that many of the study subjects had cancer, motor-neuron disorders and chronic fatigue Syndrome (CFS). She believed a virus may have been responsible for these symptoms, and through her research, she isolated the viruses that turned out to come from mice.

It looked like a virus, it smelled like a virus, a retrovirus, because those are the types of viruses that disrupt the immune system. And several other investigators back in the 90s had actually isolated retroviruses from these people but the....

PMID: 21635874 Abstract Title:  N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) inhibit mucin synthesis and pro-inflammatory mediators in alveolar type II epithelial cells infected with influenza virus A and B and with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Abstract:  64% of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations are caused by respiratory infections including influenza (strains A and B) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). They affect the airway epithelium increasing inflammatory and apoptosis events through mechanisms involving ROS generation, and induce the release of mucins from epithelial cells that are involved in the deterioration of the patient's health during the course of the disease. The antioxidant NAC has proved useful in the management of COPD reducing symptoms, exacerbations and accelerated lung function decline. It has been shown to inhibit influenza virus replication and to diminish the release of inflammatory and apoptotic mediators during virus infection. The main objective of this study is to analyze the effects of NAC in modulating MUC5AC over-expression and release in an in vitro infection model of alveolar type II A549 cells infected with influenza (strains A and B) and RSV. We have also analyzed virus replication and different pro-inflammatory responses. Our results indicate a significant induction of MUC5AC, IL8, IL6 and TNF-alpha that is strongly inhibited by NAC at the expression and at the release level. It also decreased the intracellular H(2)O(2) concentration and restored the intracellular total thiol contents. Mechanisms of NAC included inhibition of NF-B translocation to the cellular nucleus and phosphorylation of MAPK p38. NAC also inhibited replication of the three viruses under study. This work supports the use of antioxidants in order to ameliorate the inflammatory effects of different viral infections during COPD exacerbations.

PMID: 17397266 Abstract Title:  Colds and influenza: a review of diagnosis and conventional, botanical, and nutritional considerations. Abstract:  The common cold is the leading cause of doctor visits in the United States and annually results in 189 million lost school days. In the course of one year the U.S. population contracts approximately 1 billion colds. Influenza infection is still a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, accounting for 20-25 million doctor visits and 36,000 deaths per year in the United States. Conventional therapies for colds and flu focus primarily on temporary symptom relief and include over-the-counter antipyretics, anti-inflammatories, and decongestants. Treatment for influenza also includes prescription antiviral agents and vaccines for prevention. This article reviews the common cold and influenza viruses, presents the conventional treatment options, and highlights select botanicals (Echinacea spp., Sambucus nigra, larch arabinogalactan, Astragalus membranaceous, Baptisia tinctoria, Allium sativa, Panax quinquefolium, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Andrographis paniculata, olive leaf extract, and Isatis tinctoria) and nutritional considerations (vitamins A and C, zinc, high lactoferrin whey protein, N-acetylcysteine, and DHEA) that may help in the prevention and treatment of these conditions.
